Home visits are offered when the claimant provides confirmation via their own health professional which indicates that they are unable to travel on health grounds or at a claimant’s request where the assessment provider’s health professional determines this is appropriate for their health condition or disability.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Around 55% of all cancelled appointments are customer instigated cancellations.</p><p> </p><p>On 1 March 2015, a new provider took over the Work Capability Assessment contract in which the Department had set a far higher target for face-to-face assessments than that for the previous contract holder. In order to achieve its target the new provider increased the number of assessments undertaken by 29% over that undertaken in the previous year. This led to more people being seen more quickly but with a subsequent rise in the number of cancellations.</p><p> </p><p>Cancelled/Re-arranged Work Capability Assessments in the last five years are shown in the table below:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Period</p></td><td><p>Number of Cancelled Appointments</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1 May 2011 to 30 Apr 2012</p></td><td><p>377,122</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1 May 2012 to 30 Apr 2013</p></td><td><p>509,653</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1 May 2013 to 30 Apr 2014</p></td><td><p>398,133</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1 May 2014 to 30 Apr 2015</p></td><td><p>333,990</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1 May 2015 to 30 Apr 2016</p></td><td><p>505,950</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>(Source: Centre for Health Disability Assessments)</p><p> </p><p>Information on the shortest, average and longest period of time before appointments are re-arranged is not readily available and to provide it would incur disproportionate cost.</p>
