The private sector providers of face to face benefits assessments employ tens of thousands of qualified medical practitioners. We ask that the government redeploys these professionals to the NHS to help deal with the coronavirus emergency

The government has stated that face to face assessments are to be suspended and that telephone or paper assessments may be carried out. We ask instead that new claims normally requiring a test be 'waved through' without one, that reassessment of ongoing claims be stopped entirely and that medically qualified staff normally engaged in this work be redeployed from the private sector providers to the NHS to assist with the coronavirus emergency
