Whilst taking part in the HWC will be mandatory for the majority of individuals there are extensive safeguards in place. There are clear exemptions for claimants where it would be inappropriate for them to attend. Work coaches also have the flexibility to defer the HWC if the claimant cannot attend due to temporary circumstances.</p><p> </p><p>All Universal Credit claimants are expected to attend mandatory interviews prior to the work capability assessment where it is reasonable to do so. From late Autumn work coaches will use the Health and Work Conversation techniques to support claimants in discussions with claimants.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>DWP and our Assessment Providers are committed to providing a quality, sensitive and respectful service by conducting fair, accurate and objective assessments, not all of which have to be carried out face-to-face where sufficient evidence exists. Where a face-to-face assessment is required claimants are given the opportunity to alert their Assessment Provider of any additional requirements they may have and the providers will meet any such reasonable requests. Claimants are also encouraged to bring someone with them to their consultation where they would find that helpful for example, to reassure them or to help them during the consultation. The PIP Assessment Guide, which is regularly updated, provides comprehensive guidance for Health Professionals regarding all aspects of the assessment process, including how health professionals conduct themselves during face-to-face consultations.</p><p> </p><p>Awards of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) can be at one of eight possible rates of payment. Reviews of PIP are therefore a key part of the benefit and ensure that not only awards remain correct where needs may change but that we also maintain contact with the claimant, both features missing from its predecessor Disability Living Allowance. The length of an award is based on an individual’s circumstances and can vary from nine months to an on-going award with a light touch review at the ten year point. Award reviews can also be instigated where a claimant reports that their needs have improved or got worse. PIP already recognises that for the most severely disabled claimants, the award review process could seem unnecessarily intrusive. Existing PIP claimants with the most severe, lifetime disabilities, whose functional ability has remained the same, are more likely to have their evidence reviewed by a DWP Decision-Maker and will not need to have another face-to-face assessment with a healthcare professional.</p><p> </p><p>We will continue to closely monitor developments across the health and disability landscape and engage with stakeholders to improve the service we provide.
