    It's perfectly normal for your file to be sent to the health assessment providers, even for a review. Although there's been no changes in your conditions it makes no different. I hope you didn't just fill the form in with "no change." All claims should be treated as new claims by everyone, even reviews.
    Letters from Doctors and surgeons are only helpful if they state exactly how your conditions affect you and most dont.
    You should expect another assessment, which will likely be by phone. Paper based assessments are rare but still possible.

    You should expect an assessment, this way if an appointment letter arrives you won't be too shocked. If they have enough of evidence to write the report without an assessment they will but it's rare.
