Professor Harrington publishes his second review of the WCA.

What: Harrington still claims that the WCA “is the right concept” and that “the process of improvement is happening, but is not yet in evidence everywhere”.

Why significant: At this stage, the government’s independent reviewer appears satisfied that the WCA is not fundamentally flawed, but evidence to emerge later will show that DWP failed to show him crucial evidence linking the assessment with the deaths of claimants.
