I filled It In and sent It recorded delivery.

The only change was that I now have a nebuliser, all my other conditions have not changed, neither has the level of care I need.

As I wasnt sure what, If any Information they would have kept from my previous claim, I also sent a copy of my current perscription, photos, a letter from my G.P., and several other sheets explaining In great detail how my various conditions affect me In everyday life.

I will post any further news when I get It.

I got a letter back from DWP today, they have left me on what I was on before the renewal, HRC and HRM, till August 2013, which Is HUGE weight off my mind, bearing In mind It took a year long fight to get It In 2007.

I thought I might have to go for a medical, especially for the Mobility, Ive been on DLA since the early 90`s LRC till I asked for a review In 2007, and never had a medical.

As I said, I sent extra Information with the renewel form, just to make sure that whoever looked at the form had something to go on In case the previous claims Information had been destroyed, not sure how long they keep It.

Took just over 5 weeks from me returnng the form, to getting the result.

This site has been a great help, as I dont have a Social Worker or and other form of outside medical help, the tips and advice on here are Invaluable.

Hope this helps
