I don’t know if anyone has posted the details of this on the site before, but I don’t think that it will do any harm to post it again.
On another site (not MS related) I saw mention of this on the DWP website:
As part of his third independent review of the Work Capability Assessment, Professor Harrington has launched a call for evidence.
He is particularly interested in views and evidence about the implementation of his recommendations and any changes to:
- face-to-face assessment.
- decision making.
This call for evidence is aimed at individuals and organisations who have information that is relevant to how the Work Capability Assessment is operating and what further changes, if any, are needed to improve the process.
We have sent this call for evidence document to a large number of people and organisations who have previously been involved in this work or who have expressed an interest. Please do share this document with, or tell us about, anyone you think will want to be involved in this call for evidence.
See the page on the DWP site here: http://www.dwp.gov.uk/consultations/2012/wca-call-for-evidence.shtml
It doesn’t seem that it is limited only to “official” organisations so, if we have anything relevant to contrubute WE SHOULD CONTRIBUTE and add our voice to the charities and campaigning groups that I am sure are submitting lots of evidence too.
CLOSING DATE FOR CONTRIBUTIONS IS 7th SEPTEMBER SO NOT MUCH TIME LEFT
