Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
Can you please provide the criteria and guidance for a decision maker to decide to re assess a claimant for PIP by either a table top assessment or send them for an other face to face assessment. Would you also include any information given as to the correct advice and route should a claimant's case not have changed medically since the last one, and in the case of those who had a blue badge prior to the original PIP assessment have been re issued another by the council in their area. Would the later be in a framework you can provide to prove as per the last PIP assessment an ongoing evidential mobility issue that scores 10> points on the mobility element of the claim.

Yours faithfully,

Mark Bennett
