The assisted text phrases that may be used to construct the medical history were drawn from
many sources including the Incapacity Benefit Handbook, medical text books, examples of high
quality Personal Capability Assessment report and discussions with experienced approved
Healthcare Professionals (HCP). They have been quality assured by panels of experienced
HCPs and deemed appropriate for constructing good quality relevant clinical and functional
histories and were agreed in consultation with the DWP Health and Benefits Division (formerly
Corporate Medical Group).

DID MEMBERS OF THE INSURANCE INDUSTRY HAVE INPUT INTO THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE LIMA SOFTWARE THAT IS USED DURING AN ESA EXAMINATION?
