The PIP assessment process and providers.
« on: 03 Sep 2013 03:51PM »
This fact sheet covers details of the PIP assessment process and providers.

The PIP assessment will be delivered by assessment providers working in partnership with DWP.
The assessment will be conducted by a health professional who considers the evidence provided by the claimant, along with any further evidence they think is needed.

 The assessment looks at people as individuals, and focuses on the impact their condition has on their daily lives and over a range of different activities.

The health professional will complete the assessment and will send a report back to DWP.

 A DWP decision maker will then use all of this information to decide entitlement to PIP.

 The health professional will not make a decision on entitlement to PIP.

IDS we've heard it all before and know how meaningless and shallow it is.
