MSPs Suggest Five “Effective And Humane” Work Capability Assessment Improvements

MSPs have written to the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Iain Duncan Smith MP, on behalf of Scottish Parliament’s Welfare Reform Committee, suggesting five improvements to the controversial Work Capability Assessment (WCA). The move comes after it was revealed earlier this year that private contractors Atos Healthcare wish to withdraw from the ‘fit for work’ tests contract with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) early, which is due to expire in August 2015.
