The Disability Living Allowance Advisory Board

  • Richard Lucas (a1)
Extract

A recent article in the Psychiatric Bulletin reviewed how disability and incapacity benefits operate, the structure of the Benefits Agency, and the role that doctors played within the structure (Killoughery, 1999). The article was concerned with three benefits: Disability Living Allowance (DLA); Severe Disablement Allowance; and Incapacity Benefit. Linked to the planned introduction of DLA in April 1992, the Disability Living Allowance Advisory Board (DLAAB) was set up in September 1991. I describe here the nature, functions and activities of the Board.
