Detail of outcome

  • The government’s response to the consultation summarises the main points made by respondents. These include:
  • how to identify those whose ability is most limited
  • how to ensure that, when assessing an individual, consideration is given to their ability to complete tests safely, to an acceptable standard, repeatedly and within a reasonable time period (the ‘reliability criteria’)
  • introducing financial support for people who can no longer access the Motability scheme following reassessment for PIP
  • We will continue to review and improve PIP and are commissioning 2 independent reviews. These will include a consideration of how the PIP mobility criteria are working in practice and what impact they are having.
