Work Capability Assessments:
The experiences of individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury
My name is Rebecca Potts and I am carrying out this project as part of a Clinical Psychology Doctorate based at Lancaster University.
I would like to invite you to take part in my research project, which involves interviewing you about your experience of the Work Capability Assessment.
The Work Capability Assessment is a checklist introduced by the government to assess whether somebody is able to work, and therefore whether they should receive disability
benefits. This study aims to gather the views of people with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) on what it is like to take part in a Work Capability Assessment, whether that is completing the ESA-50 form or going on to attend a face to face assessment.
