The transfer of PIP to Adult Disability Payment by Social Security Scotland has begun, but there have been cases of people being required to undergo an assessment despite having a long term or chronic condition from which there is no medical chance of recovery or improvement in ability.
Local MSP Alex Cole-Hamilton said, "We're trying to understand how widespread this is, so if this has happened to you, please get in touch at Alex.Cole-Hamilton.MSP@Parliament.Scot
"This was not supposed to happen, and parliamentarians like myself were given repeated assurances by ministers that the Scottish system would not see people suffer the indignity of having to be reassessed to qualify for payments if their condition was life-long or life-limiting.
"Please note though, that I can only act for individuals directly affected or who have power of attorney/guardianship for those affected. Please do get in touch if this is affecting you."
