Stop using Atos to assess the disability and health...

e-petition
Stop using Atos and private profit driven companies to assess the disability and health of benefit claimants.

Responsible department: Department for Work and Pensions

For the chronically sick and disabled, the current system of assessment is inadequate and makes many peoples conditions worse and causes undue stress and upset. I, as a person with primary progressive multiple sclerosis, would ask the government to stop using Atos, who are driven by profit. This obviously creates a conflict of interest. To once again rely on specialist evidence from doctors and consultants as opposed to tick box evidence from non specialist privately employed individuals.
