Fatal impact of benefit assessments?

June 19, 2019

 

Debbie Abrahams has asked the equality and human rights watchdog to investigate why ministers hid documents from their own independent reviewer when they knew the information would link their “fitness for work” test to the deaths of disabled benefit claimants.

 

Concerns have grown that DWP deliberately covered-up evidence showing the fatal impact of the assessment on many disabled people.

 

Abrahams also says she is “extremely concerned” about the lack of official scrutiny of the treatment of disabled people by DWP and its private sector contractors, Maximus, Capita and Atos, which carry out the assessments.
