Atos Medical Assessments - A Crude Instrument

Despite all the numerous reassurances that the DWP continues to issue about the creditability of the Atos process the reality is that it remains a crude instrument for removing both the deserving and undeserving from receipt of benefits and it is being used as such.

Glaring inaccuracies and downright injustices  by poorly trained staff using ‘tick box’ questionnaires to assess complex conditions rely on the appeal process for correction but take little or no cognition  of the added anxiety and disruption  this causes in people’s lives long after decisions have been reversed and benefits restored.
