    The government said last year that they would stop reassessing people with conditions that weren't going to change or can only get worse. However, so far, there is no sign of this happening. I'm sorry, but for now all I can suggest is going to see your MP and reminding them of the promise the government made. 

    The government said new rules would be in place from 'autumn 2017', but autumn can mean anything from now til December in the civil service I'm afraid!

    So please, see your MP if you can, or write to them, and make exactly the points you have made here.
