A Fairer Assessment Test for the Disabled

Scrap the current ATOS test and multiple layers of designations which are applied to disabled claimants who do manage to pass. Try to find a fairer, more humane system.

Why is this important?

At the moment, disabled people are being put through a complicated procedure which often grinds down even the hardiest of claimants. It seems to be designed to deter already vulnerable people who are disadvantaged by physical and mental disabilities.

I understand that there are cases of fraud, but the actual figure of 0.5% for DLA ( Fraud and Error in the Benefit System, DWP 2012) shows that a minute percentage of the 600,000 disabled people affected are making false claims.
