I personally don't have anything, nor do I intend to think hard about it, but the simplest way not to increase strain on the NHS is to not add extra stuff to their list of things to do

No, the priority should be reducing the medical conditions that entitle an individual to receive benefits, excluding all non-testable, non-identifiable conditions is a start, then mental health restrictions can be after.
And it surely should be judged by ability to work rather than what condition they have?

The system works by using an individual's medical condition to make assumptions about the individual's fitness to work, welfare payments are being calculated on an individual's medical condition, not the individual's ability to work.

I don't think you understand that the money should be used to offset the cost of having a disability whether the individual is in work. In the case of working, it means you can financially work else, those in lower paid jobs would have little chance of living a good quality of life and working
