Personal Independence Payment Assessment Process

EDM number 1328 in 2017-19, proposed by Jim Cunningham on 04/06/2018.

That this House expresses its concern over the current personal independence payment assessment process; believes the current assessment and reassessment process places a huge burden onto those with serious and often life limiting illnesses; is concerned that problems have occurred with unqualified assessors, a lack of specialist knowledge on rare conditions and access to assessment centers often being many miles from the area where claimants live; further believes that the private sector company carrying out these assessments is failing to meet the needs of claimants; and calls on the Government to urgently review the existing regulations and contract provider.

This motion has been signed by a total of 2 MPs.
