Work Capability Assessments and Professor Peter White

This is a very brief blog post whose purpose it is to document Professor White’s involvement in the DWP’s work capability assessments (WCA). We think that the information contained in the article first published by the Disability News Service on 27th October 2016 raises serious concerns. It also provides further context with regard to Professor White’s involvement in the PACE trial and his subsequent statements and responses to criticisms of the quality of the PACE trial.
