Another lying minister: Sarah Newton fails to back measures to protect claimants from dishonest assessors

22 Friday Dec 2017
Posted by Mike Sivier

If a government minister says she has accepted all recommendations in an independent review, then it turns out that two of them have been even partially rejected, then she has lied.
Perhaps Sarah Newton should be dragged back to Parliament to explain why she has said one thing and done another?

One wonders whether she’ll try to get away with saying it was a mistake.

The minister for disabled people has refused to approve two key recommendations made by the independent reviewer of its new disability benefit, which would have made it easier for claimants to protect themselves against dishonest assessment reports.
Among the recommendations made for improvements to personal independence payment (PIP), Paul Gray said earlier this year that all assessments should be recorded, although claimants should be able to opt out if they wanted to.

He also said that all PIP claimants should be given a copy of their assessment report when receiving the letter from DWP telling them if their claim has been successful.

Putting people through what is a trial by fire rather than a decent, compassionate medical by decent compassionate GP`s is what is sour about this whole process. It`s all a tick box excersise that is there to fail people rather than assist them. It`s more a guilty until proven otherwise routine. Their attitude is if you cough, you can breathe.

I don't know how the PIP assessments go but if they are anything like the ESA ones, the staff don't even bother to wear standard uniform which suggests to me that they know deep down that they are not acting like really health professionals putting care of the disabled first. My mother was a nurse for over 30 years, I can just imagine her walking onto the ward to do a shift in her jeans NOT. Crap standards to reflect a crap government, the fact they don't show any signs of shame makes them all the more shameful. Hope this latest twisted fraud is forced to resign, mind you she'll probably get a better paid advisory role based on her many years of experience serving the public.
