    My sister committed suicide on July 2013 after being found fit for work. she said that at the face to face that whatever she said was twisted round & used against her. When she was told that she was fit to work she was also made aware that she couldn’t appeal as she had zero points. We had no idea at the time that she could have appealed & sadly it’s now too late. Even 2 1/2 years down the line has not dulled the heartache that we feel especially knowing what we know now.

      Dear Campertess.
      My sincere condolences also. I recently experienced the horror of an ATOS assessment. As you said, every statement is twisted around and manipulated. The assessment is conducted by individuals without the professional knowledge to underpin their judgements. I am an ex Psychiatric Nurse and was horrified that ‘healthcare professionals’ are prepared to act so far out of their codes of Professional Conduct.

      I was shocked to observe the method and environment in which the interview is conducted. Already anxious and terrified people are forced to endure ‘interrogation methods’ . It is in short, abuse of disabled and sick people. It must be stopped before more people lose their lives.

      I have been seriously traumatised by the process. I keep having flashbacks , nightmares and waking in the early hours of the morning with terrifying suicidal thoughts. I have support , but it doesn’t take away from the injustice and sheer abuse inflicted by ATOS

      Again, my deepest condolences.
