Independent review of Personal Independence Payments: Call for evidence

From Rightsnet: http://www.rightsnet.org.uk/welfare-rights/news/item/dwp-issues-call-for-evidence-to-inform-second-independent-review-of-pip

DWP has issued a call for evidence to inform a second independent review of PIP. This review is looking in particular at how further evidence, e.g. medical reports can be used to avoid a medical assessment or improve the outcome.
Anyone can respond and it is easy to do so either online, by email or post so can I suggest as many of us as possible respond to try to improve PIP decision making. Case examples are very effective if you have any.

If you are unable to send a response yourself, but have comments you would like to make, please let me know and we can incorporate in a response from Islington Law centre (or if sufficient feedback) from the Adviser’s Forum.
Here is a link providing more details of the call for evidence.
