Work Test Whistleblower: What Is The DWP Hiding?

The point Sheila Gilmore made in Parliament was a sound one: the DWP cannot just rely on the rate of successful appeals to gauge the accuracy of the WCA.

We know that an appreciable number of Atos recommendations are ignored by the DWP; in addition, an unknown number are reversed under the radar at the subsequent Reconsideration stage; and more still are overturned later by tribunals.

This is why the DWP is being coy. The figures will no doubt show that in practice the core WCA has been a poor measure of work capability for years. And they know it - or they would, if they bothered to look.
