Can you supply a list of named organisations used in the review of PCA change over to WCA?

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Department for Work and Pensions should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Please see quote below regarding review and change over from PCA to WCA and please provide the names of organisations DWP worked with on this review?

"Introduction of the Work Capability Assessment
The Personal Capability Assessment (PCA) is the medical assessment process used to assess individuals’ eligibility for incapacity benefits. As part of welfare reform proposals and the introduction of Employment and Support Allowance the assessment has been reviewed, to transform it into a more positive assessment of mental and physical capability and of the support an individual needs to help them work. The new process, called the Work Capability Assessment, is applied to people who claim Employment and Support Allowance.

Healthcare professionals and representatives from Trade Unions, charities and disability organisations have worked with DWP on this review. The outcome is a much improved medical assessment process "

Yours faithfully,

Trudy Baddams
