The ongoing identified human suffering created by social policy reforms, added to the austerity measures adopted since 2010, renders the chronically ill and disabled community who are unfit to work living in fear of successive neoliberal UK governments. With social policies influenced by corporate America since 1992, the adoption of the Work Capability Assessment (WCA) by the Department for Work and Pensions in 2008 to limit access to long-term disability benefit guaranteed that many disability benefit claimants would suffer and die when, quite literally, ‘killed by the State’ with, as yet, no-one held to account.
Since the conclusion to the Preventable Harm Project (2009-2019), there has been an increased academic interest in the research, with growing requests for this researcher to write for an increasing number of academic journals. It remains cause for concern that the national press continue to fail to alert the British public to the public health crisis created by the blighted social policy reforms; which are ideologically motivated on route to the removal of the UK welfare state which is the adoption of the Thatcher legacy initially identified in the published 1982 Cabinet papers.
During 2022 the findings from the Preventable Harm Project will be promoted to continue to attempt to raise awareness of the public health crisis created by the adoption of the fatally flawed WCA. The research continues.
Published in September 2016, Cash Not Care: the planned demolition of the UK welfare state is the research evidence the Coalition government tried to suppress, now in a book the Conservative government(s) hope no-one will notice.
Whilst the entire British press have been silenced, and refuse to offer the public access to the influence of corporate America with UK social policy reforms since 1992, Cash Not Care is now in the libraries of universities in the UK and in Australia, and is recommended reading for various social policy courses. The research evidence in the book is being used to educate social policy academics of the future.
