Stop all face to face assessments for PIP claimants
The Government should stop face to face PIP assessments. This can be a very stressful assessment, particularly for people with mental health issues. Many claimants have to go through this assessment every 3 years, and these are often done by a person that doesn't know you or your individual illness.
Remove this unnecessary assessment that can cause problems due to it causing unnecessary stress and mental health problems for people who already have illnesses. The assessments are also done by people who don't know each individual person's problems and are determining people’s lives using a system that can have unfair results. This is unacceptable, and should stop.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
