Council - 26th July 2018

To consider the following motion to which due notice has been given:

“That this Council notes the recent review into the PIP Assessment Process; commends the team led by Walter Rader for their efforts; recognises that the recommendations put forward will improve elements of the assessment process; expresses disappointment that de-privatising the assessment process was not included as part of the recommendations and calls on the Department for Communities to implement the recommendations as a matter of urgency and to consider further changes including an end to the privatisation of Assessments for PIP”.
