Making benefits work for long term health conditions

My own view is that capability for work shouldn’t be assessed by asking whether you can look after your pet, or watch daytime TV, as currently happens in the WCA. It should be based on things like how many hours a week you could work, to what extent your capacity for work fluctuates and whether these variations can be predicted or controlled or not. What matters is not whether you can walk 40 metres or 60 metres as much as whether the effort of a simple commute into work leaves you next to useless once you get there.
