    Ironically I have both physical and mental health difficulties some of which will never improve whilst others will finish me off completely earlier than I expected.
    However I have had three PIP assessments since 2013, two of which were changed from 0 points to enhanced care & mobility at MR stage. Each one was for a 3 year period.
    So according to that, not only were the award lengths not in accordance with current recommendations but that the third review in 2017 should never have happened. For the third review I was awarded 0 points and despite a MR request the DWP decided that 0 points was all I am entitled to.

    Sickening to be honest given what I have been through over the past 5 years.
