DWP already trying to get round PIP safety ruling

Post by helping_hand on Thu Nov 16, 2017 4:12 pm

The DWP is yet again showing its contempt for the law by issuing guidance aimed at ensuring that as few claimants as possible benefit from a court decision on safety and supervision.

The claimant has epilepsy with tonic-clonic seizures. There are no warning symptoms or triggers and the incidents can happen at any time of the day. There are no warning symptoms or triggers and the incidents can happen at any time of the day. When the clamant has a seizure their body will become stiff and then their arms and legs will start twitching. They may drop any items they are holding and will fall from a standing position. Incidents happen once per week on average.

Points awarded on safety grounds for daily living:

Preparing food. 1 (c) 2 points

Washing and bathing. 4 (c) 2 points

The claimant is awarded 4 additional points for daily living. This does not meet the minimum of 8 points for an award.

Planning and following journeys. No points are awarded as the claimant can take precautions by using safe crossings.

The result is: No change of award.

What if this person has an episode while out and about, perhaps crossing a road? No planning or precautions can mitigate against an event for which there is no warning. The person would be unable to go out alone in case something happened. No
