Did anyone see reports on BBC Breakfast about the DWP scrapping repeat assessments for those people with long term sickness or disabilities where there is little or no chance that their conditions will improve?
If this is correct I wonder if that means those of us still on DLA will be able to move on to PIP without the need to apply for it or having to undergo medical assessments? I can only live in hope.
You can't help wondering if somebody has realised that the cost of engaging the likes of ATOS and Capita to carry out the assessments is maybe costing more than just paying out the benefit to those who actually need it.
Does anyone have any more detailed info?
