Just what planet are these assessors on, even though they may not, initially, understand the conditions people have, they will have had sight of the persons application for PIP and therefore they should have looked up the relevant information before interviewing the claimant.
The assessors, I believe come from different branches of the medical profession and if this is the extent of their knowledge, how can they hope to proceed with their professional career.
Or is it that they could not careless for the claimants they are assessing as long as they get paid for assessing them.
Each of the assessors and their employers should be accountable for the decisions they make and if they make wrong decisions then that part of their received payment should be returned.
Only in this way will correct decisions be made, or is the correct decision, every time, irrespective of what is included in the claimants application, to decline the benefit requests.
This is not a way of saving money as every incorrect assessment costs much more by going through the appeals process, the whole system is ‘not fit for purpose’.
But unfortunately the systems throughout the benefits procedures and also those administered by Local Government Authorities are their to hinder, create stress and be a general provision to create untold harm to the people accessing the various authorities and respective departments.
Are these systems there to create situations where people cannot survive thereby reducing the market as death will be the ultimate conclusion and thereby make the savings that are obviously the prime objective.
