PIP for Amputees
I want all amputees to be given PIP at enhanced rate.
When you lose a limb you become disabled that limb will never grow back yet amputees are often turned down or given standard rate meaning they’re not eligible for a Motability vehicle.
This is something that most people with a disability need, most amputees get a prosthetic but they often can’t wear them due to comfort, liner problems, socket problems the list goes on.
Some are told at their assessment that it’s not classed as a mobility aid, so why do the government say different ?
It can be very difficult for an amputee to walk far they need a vehicle & a blue badge regardless of whether they can wear their prosthetic or not!
Why is this important?
It’s important that this disability is recognised as such and all Amputees are given PIP enhanced rate.
