    Hello, the appeal tribunal does not take new evidence and can and do only review the evidence that was presented at your original PIP acessment, other may sujest that you make a new claim so new medical information can be included.

    Do you mean you've had your Tribunal hearing and you were awarded Standard rate mobility? If you're waiting for your Tribunal hearing then they will only be able to take into consideration how your condition was when the original decision was made. To start a new claim when waiting for a Tribunal could be the worst thing you could do and you need to get further advice before doing this.

    If you've have your Tribunal decision and you're thinking about reporting a change of circumstances then you also need further advice before doing this. PIP isn't awarded based on any diagnosis, it's how those conditions affect you daily. No one can tell you whether you risk losing the award you already have but reporting a change of circumstances means more forms and another face 2 face assessment. More evidence will also be needed to support your claim.
