The assessments for ESA and PIP are causing immense suffering

The assessments for ESA and PIP are causing immense suffering as they deny access to benefit, the questions i.e. About bowel movements are nothing to do with being capable of working! PIP assessments similarly do not reflect what is happening to the claimant! Assessments are all too often wrong and appeal in court over rides the DWP decision and allows the benefit, Appeal can take up to anything 18 months with no benefit denying them their Warm Home payments and other passports benefits.
How do I know this, I have been through the system with family and friends.
Assessments are only in place to cut welfare bill but it’s costing taxpayer millions and causing claimants distress and hardship!
Assessment reports I have been involved in are full of contradictions, opinions and lies! I can only speak for myself but I created a Facebook group about this issue several years ago and I’ve heard numerous similar stories!
Why should sick people have to go to court to get what they are entitled to? What they’ve contributed to!
