All PIP face to face assessments to held in rooms with video and audio recordings

This petition had 1,267 supporters

Many thousands of disabled people are lossing their Pip payments,due to face to face assessments being carried out,there are major differences between what the claimant has listed as their difficulties and medication,to what is actually being recorded by the assessor.

Many people have gone on to succeed their case at mandatory reconsideration,or court tribunals.

Disabled people once again are being treated unfairly.The emotional,physical and financial impact this is having on them has reached a peek.

If there were purpose built room's,in centre's,then the Dwp decision makers could look and listen to the recording,and make a fair and balanced decision,about the claimants disability.

As it stands it seems it is up to the claimant to "prove" that they disabled and sources their own "evidence",including doctor's letters,consultant letters,medical suppliers details,prescription details etc.All at a cost to the claimant.

The process of mandatory reconsideration and court appeals,can take months and months.

During this time payments are stopped.

If the government and Dwp worked together,this could easily be resolved by having video and audio recordings,then they could be send directly to the decision makers.

The stress and anxiety for the claimant could be reduced greatly,as they would know that all the information would be recorded accurately and truthfully.
