Jeff calls for reform of the PIP Assessments

 

In a recent survey of PIP claimants done by Rethink Mental Illness, 38% of respondents felt that delays in decisions meant deterioration in their mental health and 19% had to take higher doses of medication in order to cope with the increased stress.

Jeff pressed the Minister on whether she had read their report, and what the Government was going to do to reform PIP assessments so they don't worsen claimants mental health.
