Work Capability Assessment
Posted by SANE
29th Nov 2010

Please see comment below by Marjorie Wallace, Chief Executive of the mental health charity SANE, on the Government’s acceptance of the recommendations of an independent review of the Work Capability Assessment:

“SANE welcomes the Government’s acceptance of these recommendations. We hope this will help to reassure the many people with mental illness contacting us who fear that the benefit assessment system will not allow for the fluctuating nature of their condition. It is vital that someone recovering from mental breakdown should not be doubly penalised by potential loss of benefit or undertaking work which could trigger relapse.”
