Obtaining further medical evidence and patients with mental health conditions

I have had a look at [2013] EWCA Civ 1565 but am still a bit confused.  Is it the case that where a claimant with a mental health conditions is being assessed for Work Capability, the DWP always has the duty to contact their GP for Further Medical Evidence before making a decision?  Or is this an oversimplified view?
