GPs are charging people at their most vulnerable and we are working with the Department of Health and Social Care to identify what more we could do to help victims of domestic abuse access the help they need. This important issue has been put forward as part of the GP contract negotiations for 2019-20. Whilst the content of those negotiations is not discussed publicly until an agreement has been reached, the Government is committed to dealing with this issue, through this process.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <table><tbody><tr><td><p>It is important that appeals are heard as quickly as possible. The Ministry of Justice recognises that there are delays in the system and is in the process of recruiting extra judicial office holders to help deal with this. In the Social Security and Child Support (SSCS) jurisdiction, which is the part of the tribunal system which deals with personal independence payment appeals, 225 new medical members have already been appointed and 119 disability-qualified members have recently been recruited. The SSCS jurisdiction will also benefit from the fact that 250 fee-paid judges and 100 salaried judges are being recruited across tribunals more widely. In addition, we have recently launched a new digital service to enable speedier processing of appeals and provide a better service for all parties to the proceedings. Information on the new digital service can be found at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-online-service-launched-for-pip-appeals" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-online-service-launched-for-pip-appeals</a></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p>
