    HI,

    I thought i commented on this early this morning, i guess it didn't post.

    Yes, that is correct. If you can't undertake any journey at all then this will score 10 points in Activity 1E, which scores 10 points and is standard mobility. https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/Global/Migrated_Documents/adviceguide/pip-9-table-of-activities-descriptors-and-points.pdf

    You're welcome.
    PIP isn't awarded based on any diagnosis. It's how your conditions affect your ability to carry out daily activity based on the PIP descriptors. What you should do is look at the PIP descriptors to see if it's possible to score anymore points for a higher award, if it's not then there's no point in ringing to report those changes.
