To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many personal independence payment assessment appointments failed to take place as a result of double booking of appointments between 2010 and 2015.
30 June 2015
Since Personal Independence Payment was rolled out from April 2013, 2,134 claimants have been sent home because the number of claimants attending scheduled appointments exceeds expectations. This represents 0.4% of the total number of claimants seen. This information is sourced from Atos and Capita Management Information records and has not been quality assured.
