decision without face to face
I recently posted that I had received a review of PIP form in the post, and was dreading a face to face assessment, but there was no need for me to be concerned as this morning I got a letter which basically states that having reviewed my returned form, my PIP will remain the same up to August 2022 which is obviously good news, however I did advise them that I was recently admitted to hospital as I was coughing up a large amount of blood, almost a pint in total, which following blood tests has shown that I am severely anemic, this is causing severe fatigue, weakness, headaches, dizziness and muscle pain when walking, I am now faced with the decision of , do I simply leave it and accept that my award has not changed or do I ask for a mandatory reconsideration? I am not too sure about this as the anemia is not related to my original disability which was a stroke
