– Atos Healthcare
We work hard to provide the DWP with as much detailed information as we can to contribute to them making an accurate decision on benefits. We continually review all processes to ensure assessments are of the highest standards and that if improvements are needed we can make them quickly.
Our doctors, nurses and physiotherapists are fully trained and registered with their relevant professional body. They have all received training in the assessment of people with mental health conditions and there are now mental function champions in place across our centres to offer specialist advice.
The Department for Work and Pensions has been criticised for making the wrong decisions on the ability of benefit claimants to work, by the Public Accounts Committee.
