    Sorry I've had to ask this here because I can't for the life off me workout how to post a new question. Can I just ask I sent my own review form over 3 weeks ago to dwp I put on it that I was having a medication review with my own gp, that review has now taken place and my medication has been doubled, do I inform PIP or just leave it. Thank you for any advise you can give me about matter.

    No, there's no need to inform DWP. If an assessment is needed for your PIP review and it's likely then you can tell the AP during the assessment.

    I've made your comments into a separate thread. Are you now clear on how to start a new discussion. I know that everything now looks a bit different, so please do let us know if you're still unsure!

    Thank you Tori :) im hoping i don't get called in for an assessment i sent so much evidence in with my renewal and listed my 15 daily medications, my only worry is will i get in trouble for not informing them months ago about my worsening conditions?

    No you won't get into trouble for this.

    A worsening of condition doesn't automatically entitle you to more points for a higher award anyway. Before reporting changes a person should always get expert advice.
