Today the Scottish newspaper The Daily Record reported on a new site set up to campaign against the government’s Personal Independence Payment scheme. Many of you may have gone through a PIP assessment. I had one which I later found at a tribunal was conducted by a physiotherapist who knew nothing about mental health issues. Luckily I persevered through to a tribunal and 7 months later had the decision reversed. It took the DWP 5 days to write back to me telling me that they were appealing the decision made by a judge, GP and lay professional . The struggle continues.
The Stop PIP site is here.
