Report into the administration of the PIPs scheme -Mullan

Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has said the publication of a report into the shortcomings of the Personal Independence Payments (PIPs) scheme highlights how the system can be improved. 
The Foyle MLA said: 
“I welcome the publication of this report into the administration of the PIPs scheme which highlighted the failures and confusion associated with it. 
“From the offset we have said the assessment process was fundamentally flawed and did not meet the needs of claimants. 
“The Communities Minister has said she will carefully consider all the recommendations of the NIPSO report and continue discussions with stakeholders on how they may be taken forward.”
