Kate tells us that people don't like multiple appointments so that is why this new assessment is going to be bolted on to the end of the WCA. It can't possibly be an assessment in any depth when this is something that is by its nature very complex.
It can only be a tick box list - like needs a ramp - needs deaf / blind friendly computer.
I think as it is meant to put you in the mind set of being hopeful and positive that it is unlikely to be a list of things you can't do - it's going to stress the positives.
It sounds cosmetic. Politicians keep stressing the back to work positives to cover up the fact that the real story is that they are threatening and frightening sick and disabled people off benefits. Mainly by a means test if they are still there after a year and haven't already been bullied off.
Let's do it the other way round. First make sick and disabled people feel safe and secure which is something they could actually do. Then talk about going back to work which the evidence shows is something that currently they can't do.
Looking at this forum I can see there is now no point in sharing more research that is totally disregarded.
Sorry Mo but NO we need your input, it opens eyes and can encourage others to join the fight - which will hopefully help resolve this debacle eventually.

The Green Party solution is to chuck out the whole bag and baggage.
Everyone should be entitled to a non-means tested citizens income.
People with disabilities should also receive a top-up direct payment that reflects their needs.
People with disabilities should be free to work or not work as they please, but they might well choose to spend their direct payment to employ a support worker to enable them to access paid employment or unpaid voluntary work.
Paid work should not affect their income, but they will pay tax like anyone else.
