I do apologise if there was a thread on this recently; but I can't find it.

In short, the DWP have decided you won't be reassessed if you're in the support group and

- the condition will always be present

- there's no realistic chance of recovery (such as a transplant or surgery)

Again and reading the statement giving by DR UK, they again highlight the main problem which the DWP and the government seem to be ignoring and its stems from the most important part of the procedure carried out by Health Professionals who clearly are not qualified to carry out such an important assessment which the Claimant should be able to rely on.

 

It goes further though when you consider the figures giving, after someone appeals the decision of a unqualified professional preparing a report, when the DWP consider this during the mandatory period they too are getting it completely wrong, when you consider that 82% of reconsiderations are rejected but higher down the road of appeal and when in theory a qualified doctor, judge and disabled person are presented with the same evidence 70% of Claimants are successful.

 

So considering both percentages only 2 in 10 and after they have been told that they do not qualify are awarded ESA by the DWP ON appeal, but the figure of 7 in 10 are in favour of the Claimant but a Claimant needs a Tribunal to be able to establish this.

 

The system and those figures prove beyond doubt that not only is the current system of a DWP medical assessment not working, and not up to a standard that any Claimant should be giving a basic right to a fair and proper assessment, the Tribunal Service are having to put right time after time, the wrong decision making being carried out by the DWP, after an assessment.

 

The DWP are and in theory in a win,win situation, because they are always afforded to defend any decision that they make, which is wrong all the way to the Tribunal and chance their hand on the day, but going by those figures they are not proving their original decision to be correct in any event, quite a poor return.

 

I would be interested to know how much public funding is being waged and evidently lost by the DWP in allowing these appeals to go all the way, knowing full well the chances of them proving their original decision in Court as 1 in 5.

 

Where could I request the figures that show just how much public funding is being used to and in real terms argue a case that they evidently lose four times out of five.

 

They and like the Health Care Proffessionals that they initially rely on to take Claimant off of welfare benefits that they are entitled too are not accountable in an anyway whatsoever, lets see how much they are costing the public in pounds, shillings and in pence, in chancing their arm in Court, so to speak.

Well they waste millions on these private companies that are not British owned, to carry out these farces they call assessments , So they will be shelling out a similar amount of money on tribunal hearings which the other farce known as the MR was put in place to cut the number of cases going to tribunal , Me thinks government have been lying about this, The assessments are a guise to deny as many as possible sickness benefits, & nothing more the whole thing is set up that way

assessments should be carried out by GP's or consultants who know the claimant

That is the only way people will be fairly assessed unless they audio/video record every assessment these callous companies and their charlatan HCP's then their examination techniques can be subject to being scrutinised too
