The table below shows the number of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) mandatory reconsideration (MR) registrations for people with a primary disabling condition of inflammatory bowel disease, by financial year of MR registration.

Data is based on primary disabling condition as recorded on the PIP computer system. Claimants may often have multiple disabling conditions upon which the decision is based but only the primary condition is shown in these statistics. Therefore, there may be other claimants who have been diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease who are not captured in the data.
