Independent review of PIP: data sharing
Posted on: August 9 2016, 02:36 pm

Hello everyone

The second independent review of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is accepting evidence until 16 September.

NAT will be submitting a response, including what we have found so far about the impact of PIP on people living with HIV.

One area where I would particularly welcome feedback are the following proposals around data-sharing:

"
Data sharing
We are looking at whether further data should be shared across the Department and with external organisations, such as the health and social care sector, to support the claim process and to improve the support offered to claimants. This could include sharing information between DWP benefit systems, for example sharing recent Work Capability Assessment reports with health professionals working on PIP. It could also include gathering information from social care assessments or healthcare providers.
Personal information would need to be subject to appropriate data protection, as set out in the DWP’s Personal Information Charter.

10. Have you previously submitted other evidence to the Department for Work and Pensions e.g. from previous benefit claims, that you feel was relevant or should have been considered in the claim for PIP? What was this?

11. Are there other parts of government (e.g. the NHS, social services) that hold information on you that you feel was relevant or should have been considered in your PIP claim? If yes, what was this?

12. If you had other evidence available that you felt would be relevant, would you consider submitting this as part of the PIP claim? Why?

13. Would you feel comfortable with the Department sharing information between different benefit systems or with other parts of government, such as the health and social care sector, to support your PIP claim? Please briefly explain your answer.

Please feel free to email comments directly to sarah.radcliffe@nat.org.uk, by 9 September.

Also, a reminder that if you have been assessed for PIP and would like to share your experience in an anonymous way, the Disability Benefits Consortium (DBC)  are running a survey: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/2253593/565b32edcaeb  NAT is a member of the DBC and we will be able to use any HIV-specific cases which people submit in our own research.
