HomeBlogDBC report shows how Atos and Capita will deliver PIP assessment

    The recording of such assessments is an absolute right for claimants, it needs no-0ne’s permission.

    They are using Atos for the majority of cases because they know they don’t give a damn
    about the disabled. Evil scum.

    Collectively, we should tell them to fuck off!

    People cant face the disgusting treatment ahead,I cant go through this againI have got no fight left. Will anyone do anything to help people with disabilities and mental health we have enough trouble just living. we dont have the strenghth to fight . we need help to fight. They are picking on us as they proberably know we wont protest, but should people not be afriad of governments, or should goverments be afraid of the people. someone somewhere help us to fight this brutal imoral and disgusting treatment of disabled people.

    Esther McVey has already decided that CAPITA will NOT be providing Audio Recording of PIP Assessments, CAPITA will not even be providing the same audio recording service Atos do at present?????

    If there is no recording then whoever does the assessment can say anything they like.
    What happens is they add only the useful parts of your answer to their questions to suit their agenda in denying you your benefit.

    The DWP treat Atos reports as gospel, nothing else matters to them. According to the DWP it is an impartial assessment!

    If it was a fair ubiased and impartial report then they would have no objections to the interviews being recorded.

    If you are going for a Atos assessment I would recommend that you say as little as possible, keep your answers to a few words and don’t be drawn into long explanations.

    If you are repeatedly questioned after answering, state that you have given them the answer. If they object to your answers tell them that you don’t feel well and are doing the best you can.

    The less you say the less they have to falsify their report

    Jay, right about now – I’ve got an interesting dilemma. Created by this crackpot system we all know as the Welfare Programme….In reading the comments on the board you guys have given me the one thing this government took away – HOPE – You see, it was the DWP who got me on Workfare – with No Support – which led to me losing the job I had, and being put on IB/ESA – Now, several shrinks and quacks during this process said (AND I QUOTE…) “Given Your circumstances, You shouldn’t be working” – still got the mountain of papers in the office. So, Now our Friends at ATOS have had a look at the same evidence, same reports (Couldn’t have spent >1 Minute looking at it all!) but have deemed me fit for work – WITHOUT SEEING ME! Do I go without my ESA – or do I report back to Jobcentre Plus SEEMINGLY fit as a fiddle?!?…scratch that…I went the other week – and found (laughing my head off) ALL my records relating to the Jobcentre had gone walkabout off their system!!! one Quick Interrogation of Desk Officer later – I’m still on ESA… So given the three parties playing on the Jobcentre roundabout aren’t talking to one another and are kind of making me dizzy in the process, WHAT would you have me do DEPARTMENT OF “WORK” (Laughs)?

    Covert recording is the only thing truly left open to people, I record all phone calls and face to face interviews/assessments….

    I recently went for the atos medical retired on ill health with spine disease occupationl health consultant report orthapeadic specialist report provided .Atos registered nurse said these are irrelavent.When i read the medical report i realised i was dealing either with a liar or a gross incompetant rgn.13 points he got wrong.

  • jay April 22, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    Atos employees are liars, that is why they don’t want these assessments being recorded. What other reason could there be?

    These assessments are loaded against you in the first place without supposed health professionals falsifying reports. Make no mistake what they are doing is a criminal offence yet Atos seem to be immune (at the moment)
    Incompetent is too kind a word for them. These people are an absolute disgrace to their profession. What kind of nurse or doctor would work for Atos? Only the lowest of the low.
    These are not your usual caring NHS Doctors and Nurses.

    Make sure you get your appeal in. With your specialist and GP’s help, their written evidence will overturn this stupid decision by Atos/DWP.
    The best of luck to you

    we all have experienced the lies atos have used on our assessment I myself contacted the n.c.m.to complain about the rgn who assessed me and was informed by them that no atos rgn had been disciplined as a result of a complaint, and there had been many.Surely as an rgn they have a code of conduct and the n.c.m. should take action if this conduct is broken! What is going on.

    I’m kinda relieved. Although I’ll be on less money for the same entitlement (high rate care and low rate mobility), at least I’ll have a somewhat sympathetic Capita assessor because I live in Derbyshire, which is in central England. Still have to leave my home to face a jerkwad for my ESA WCA, however.
