    Welcome to the community @gez1357 I am sorry to hear this, how are you doing today? Maybe you can try asking for a call back from you GP. According to the Citizen Advice website; if you think you have been put in the wrong group, You can ask the DWP to re-think their decision. This is called ‘mandatory reconsideration’. You can contact your local CAB for advice or you can come to us if you have any questions. :)

    Hi @gez1357, how long have you been in the work related group? 
    If it has been a while and your condition has deteriorated, you need to inform the DWP. This will trigger a review and usually another assessment whereby they will decide which group you should be in based on your condition now.
