IMPORTANT! Please read if you have had an ATOS assessment

Postby Woodentop » Wed Jul 25, 2012 11:02 am

Received an email from the Benefits and Work website ( you don't have to be a member to see this )
Professor Harrington who has been doing the review into ATOS wants to hear from anyone who has been through the ATOS assessment as to whether the changes he has recommended are making a difference. It's basically whether we are being dealt with fairly and effectively since the changes were made ( I think a lot of us know the answer to that one!!)
It goes on to say that the DWP have made it extremely difficult for anyone to answer the questions( surprise!) and probably working on the assumption that hardly anyone will have the chance to respond, will get a favourable outcome for them. It explains it fully on the site - too much to put here.
Benefits and Work have put together a questionnaire themselves and so it's important that all of us who have suffered at the hands of ATOS to fill this in and it will then be forwarded to Prof Harrington. Not much time - it has to be back by the 7th September. It seems that it was deliberate that they only give us a few weeks to do it and that it coincided with the school summer holidays. Pass this on to as many people as you can.

Hi Just found the link

http://www.dwp.gov.uk/consultations/201 ... ence.shtml

I will defiantly be doing this as i have had a very bad experience with ATOS with both the WCA and DLA assessments I've had.
