So many people trying to claim Disability Benefits are distraught when they get their Assessment Reports back. It appears that the reports written do not match what actually happened on the day or say different answers than those actually given. Any illness, especially Mental Health can be exacerbated by the stress and upset that inaccurate Reports cause. I have experience of this. I was a complete mess at my Assessment and my Daughter had to speak for me but according the the ‘specialist’, I was not at all anxious or upset, I gave great eye contact and answered all questions fully!’ This is just an example of the ‘discrepancies’ I have heard about. Also, if taken to Tribunal and won, it has wasted so much Government money to get it to that stage. Let’s make it Law to have all Assessments/Interviews recorded so that there is actual proof of what happened. This would also be good for the DWP as they can also review Assessments/Interviews to make it easier to come to a decision if Appealed. Please sign and let’s make it happen.
