Biopsychosocial Model

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

I have heard the phrase Biopsychosocial Model used in relation to the ESA and WCA. Could you provide me with copies or direct me to documents that explain its relation to ESA and the WCA?

If this is not possible am I correct that the design and implementation of the ESA and WCA is based on a model that states all illnesses and disabilities affect and are affected by Biological processes, Psychological processes and Social Processes and that the 3 all affect each other?

Yours faithfully,

Gerald Jones
