PROVIDE EVERY ESA PIP CLAIMANT WITH A SHORT FORM FOR THEIR GP/CONSULTANT ASKING IF DWP RULES 29 & 35 APPLY TO SAFEGUARD VULNERABLE CLAIMANTS
Responsible department: Department for Work and Pensions
All Vulnerable Groups in society including: ALL MENTALLY ILL, LEARNING DISABLED, AUTISTIC, BLIND, EMOTIONALLY UNSTABLE PERSONALITY DISORDERS, DISABLED & ALL others deemed ‘VULNERABLE’.
Instead of sending vulnerable people to ATOS for Assessments for WCA, PIP, send all claimants a simple form for the person to give to their own GP/Consultant to fill in asking if DWP Rules 29 & 35 apply to that person. This would then safeguard & exclude our most vulnerable from the stress & anxiety of needless assessments & the long appeal process, it would protect them. This is a simple & effective safeguard for all vulnerable members of society to stop them falling through the very safety net that should be there to protect them! DWP/ATOS are failing our most vulnerable time & time again the way the system works now, the safety net doesn’t work it’s dangerous! David Cameron promised before being elected he would look after our most sick & disabled, Government are letting people most at risk down!
