Toxic Atos are again having to rebrand claiming

Following an independent review of the PIP assessment journey claimants experience in December 2014, Paul Gray recommended a number of changes to claimant communications to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and Assessment Providers.
After consultation with DWP and reviewing our communications, we have introduced a new business name that better represents the work we do independently assessing PIP cases.
We believe Independent Assessment Services does this because: • It makes it clear that we are ‘independent’ providers, distinct from DWP • ‘Assessment’ explains the service we deliver assessing PIP cases more clearly than ‘healthcare’ does

It can rebrand as much as it likes, it  doesn’t stop the DWP destroying disabled people’s lives when being assessed and losing their money,  vehicles, jobs when they fail to be assessed correctly and leaving some so distraught their health actually deteriorates or they lose what income from working they had , and the worst case scenario is they are left housebound  when they lose their mobility vehicles.

The stories are now coming thick and fast towards those contractors, which Atos is one, of lies and malpractice of assessors. Capita is the other contractor whose reputation has also been tarnished badly .

65% of decisions are now being overturned on appeal, some just give up because they genuinely cannot cope with their health conditions and the long protracted process that it entails and the loss of vital income which helps with the extra costs they face as disabled people. Recently those with mental health were asked ‘why they had not killed themselves yet’ ! Reports given to DWP in a lot of cases are filled with fabrication, claim claimants.

One the eve of election night many are scared witless by these assessments praying to god that Labour are installed into Number 10 who have promised to scrap these assessments along with the notorious WCA assessments which Atos used to carry out until they left their contract early leaving Maximus to pick up the pieces.

Either way these assessments are going the same way,  should Labour get power this will need to be tackled head on to prevent serious preventable harm to those whom are struggling under the last 7yrs of horrific reforms to survive. Many thousands have died along the way, with Atos and the DWP blaming each other, but the blame lays fairly and squarely at the governments door for a badly thought out policy decision that has affected the disabled community on a grand scale, while blaming disabled people for being workshy,lazy , and faking disability which the general public have latched onto and left the disabled community easy targets of Hate Crime. Disabled people do not mind having a fair assessment given the public purse is helping them live independently, what they object to is being hounded to their graves and every waking moment being made scapegoats for a failed government policy that was only ever going to cause harm and they did not even have the decency to step in and stop this happening. The enquiry into PIP (Personal Independence Payments) was conveniently called off due to the fact Mrs May called a snap election in the hope of continuing these awful policies to cut the welfare bill of those they promised to protect.

The disabled community has been hit 9 times harder than any other section of society, for the failure of a society who no longer care, a department who is determined to put saving money over human life of a community that takes the least of the welfare budget.

      totally agree, having seen the outcomes of these assessments, complained against two, reported one for a varying amount of offences and there are some more in the offing, it does not matter to me what they call themselves, until they as a company are held accountable and liable by massive financial penalties and a similiar system to a NHS Pals Complaints system, which works,they and any of there underling companies can call themselves whatever they like, there just another appendage linked to tory who only cure is to be struck of from government contracts permanently

    IAS it gets worse you had atos wealthcare and now look at the acronym IAS, It does not take much imagination, Independent Assisted Crossword clue 7 letters begins in s ends end, IAN sounds better, Independent Assisted Negligence- something that all three companies involved in these assessments are good at, followed by there complaints procedure -AID- Automatic Indefensible Deniability.

    there a IT Company, they certainly should not be allowed near a government contract unless they have accountability and liability clauses that cover costs to harm of patients including private Medical treatment for the harm they have caused.

    this makes my blood boil, All the More reason for not voting the Nasty/negligent/incompetent and irresponsible party today

    So that’s where they can stick it.
    .

    All the ex-Atos abusing murdering criminals now at Maximus have always called themselves ‘CHDA’. But everyone still calls the sub-human filth ‘Maximus’.
    >”It makes it clear that we are ‘independent’ providers, distinct from DWP ”
    ‘Just following orders’ = Nuremberg defense.
    Just means that the swine have been abetted or encouraged and/or bribed to commit their crimes.

  10. if it all had saved money and reduced the national debt we could have at least seen something for it. although that still does not excuse how these austerity measures have affected so many in such devastating ways.but we all know where that cash has gone. into giving MPs pay rises whilst lessening the tax they are supposed to pay but dont.

    Hi There I have to disagree with one thing in your article, I don’t think it was a ‘poorly thought out policy’. Indeed I think that it was a very well thought out policy. Cold, calculating and evil – yes. But not poorly thought out. They knew exactly what they were doing. Great articles Regards Martin
