    Unfortunately, I’m not surprised by this.

    I have M.E./CFS and chronic pain, an illness which has no cure. Like others, I applaud any efforts to nab those who cheat the system BUT these efforts are now at the expense of honest citizens who just happen to be ill and unable to work.

    Even staff on the phones at Job Centre Plus, now turn themselves into Doctors and compare illness to illness. EVERY CLAIMANT is now under suspicion of being a fraudster, regardless of their medical history.

    It’s going to be an upward struggle to retain the benefits we have at the moment.

    The DWP spent over £3.5Bn on Atos in the 2010. Download this spreadsheet obtained under FoI last year to see all the figures for all the departments. http://dlahelpgroup.com/downloads/DWP.xlsx
    Its BIG so you will need to use Search for “Medical Services” to find it!
    Trying to get the figures for 2010/2011.

    As Francesca Martinez told Michael Portillo, we have a morally disabled Government. A society that tolerates the intolerance towards Keith Tilbury is doomed for failure. Atos should be banned from the UK.

    Is it any surprise that Unum have their finger in this pie? I for one feel ripped off by them. Following an industrial injury in May 2006, it took me 4 years to get a partial payment out of them, or as they prefer my employer. However the interesting point is that to get the payment you must be recieving Incapacity Benefit, haha, so if the number of people on IB or ESA falls, Unums profits rise. corrupt corrupt corrupt.
