To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have for recording proceedings at Personal Independence Payment assessments.
27 May 2016
The recording of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) consultations by assessment providers is not currently part of the contractual specification for PIP assessments.
However, claimants can ask to record their own assessment, provided they comply with the conditions put in place: they must::-
- Inform the provider in advance;
- Be able to provide a complete and accurate copy (CD / audio cassette only) of the recording to the health professional at the end of the consultation; and
- Sign a declaration agreeing that they will not use the recording for any unlawful purpose.
