ATOS IDIOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Postby wikid » Sat Jun 30, 2012 1:25 am

Went for ATOS medical for ESA and results were used for DLA claim. Haven't heard about ESA yet but got letter from DLA 2day and it appears that every question I answered at my medical the doctor concerned has written down the opposite of what I told him!!! :yikes:
I don't have any problems walking, I don't have anxiety or panic attacks, I don't have problems cooking a meal, I can get in and out of a bath and wash my own hair and I'm not at risk of falling! Wish someone would tell my body these things, the sore nose and bruised forehead I see in the mirror, along with the fall that caused them must be in my imagination!!!!!!!!!!!! :scream-1:

I had exactly the same thing happen to me. They used my results of my atos medical in feb this year for my dla claim in June. I've got worse that's why I claimed.
I don't think they even read my new claim.

I've rang them and asked for a reconsideration, which I did over the phone.

Hi, it has been suggested on spartacus site that anybody
attending atos interviews should record it, i'm not sure if you
have to inform them first of your intention to record, that
would have to be researched, hope this is of some help.

All depends on the DWP backlog and if your transfering from IB to ESA or on the assessment phase.

If your on the assessment phase you will hear roughly within 2weeks but if your being transfered this can extend up to 3months or more! :yikes:
