Work Capability Assessment

Call for Evidence: Year 3 Independent Review


The Department for Social Development has commissioned Professor Malcolm Harrington to undertake his third Independent Review of the Work Capability Assessment, as required by section 10 of the Welfare Reform Act (Northern Ireland) 2007. The call for evidence asks customers to reflect back on a Work Capability Assessment they may have had in the past and compare it to their most recent experience. The information obtained will be used to assist Professor Harrington in forming views to help develop the review.
Who Can Reply
This call for evidence is aimed at individuals and organisations who have information that is relevant to how the Work Capability Assessment is operating and what further changes, if any, are needed to improve the process.
