PIP should be administered and decided by the NHS, not the DWP/contracting firms - Petitions

PIP should be administered and decided by the NHS, not the DWP/contracting firms - Petitions | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
Currently the DWP handles the deliberation of PIP and ESA. Disability is a state of being dealing with health, not work and pensions. The decisions for any disability related payments or dictates should be handled by the government's experts (i.e. health professionals) in the NHS, not DWP.
britishroses's insight:
Please sign and share disabled and sick people need your help. Taxpayers money is being handed over to companies such as Atos, Capita and Maximus to assess disabled and sick people and deny them the support they need, they deliberately lie and omit information when they assess people per orders from the DWP and are destroying peoples's lives. This is not the way we should be treating our most vulnerable, the people best placed to assess them are those who have studied for years and work in the field the consultants and doctors, not some pencil pusher who has sold their sole for £. Your support is greatly appreciated, thank you!

A critique of the government’s claimant satisfaction survey – | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
"An official survey shows that 76% of people in the [PIP] system responded to say that they were satisfied. That itself is not a happy position, but it shows that her representation of people’s average experience as wholly negative on the basis of a Twitter appeal does not reflect the results of a scientific survey."  Stephen…
