Paul Gray, the independent reviewer of personal independence payment (PIP) has issued his second call for evidence.
He is particularly interested in hearing from claimants, carers and support workers about:
“ . . the impact of ‘further evidence’ on coming to entitlement decisions which properly reflect claimant needs and the day-to-day functional impacts of their condition. I plan to consider, for instance, how evidence that a PIP claimant has already obtained, such as a care plan, or specialist report from a health professional, is currently being used to assist the claim decision, and in what cases these may act as an alternative to face-to-face consultations”
Gray also wants to hear from people about their general experience of claiming PIP and, where appropriate, their experience of appealing a PIP decision.
