    they dont employ Health care assistants................... drs nurses ot and physio all in theory having done the training to see if your fit for work .........but in the end the dwp DM is the one who will say what your fit for

    ATOS do not write what we tell them i had my medical 4 months ago and seen as fit to work,i explained all in detail but have zero points i took along hospital letters but on my report they said i never had any thing like that with me,in short all i said was ignored and opposite gets written so be prepared for them lying,if they do don't get upset as it happens to so many people,take along someone with you for support never go alone.

    Hi Daisychain

    Thanks for your reply, i'm a virtual recluse i don't have many people in my life as i'm not the easiest person to live with due to my depression. The only people who i keep in my life is my sister and i'm relying on her to go with me to the appointment, but she may not be able to go with me as she has family problems at the moment.

    If i'm not able to take my sister, who else can i get to go with me for support are there any social care nurses that could go with someone, or maybe someone from CAB.

    Thats what i'm worried about and why i think taking a secret recorder might be useful, as i have read many horror stories about many ATOS nurses lying about people's conditions?

    Actually i think thats why ATOS are failing many sick claimants, they lie and cheat plus they don't have enough medical back ground knowledge to understand mentally ill and disabled people's problems?

    ATOS do lie i have heard so many of it going on,my appointment went okay i was only there 20 minutes in total the doctor was polite of sorts,when i showed my hospital appointment letter he kept saying"Its okay i don't need to see it i believe you"and he refused to even look at it,he looked everywhere but at this letter,i now find out he wrote that i never had anything of the sort with me i even use a walking stick he wrote i never had so its that sort of thing,i even mentioned my panic attacks but that was not mentioned at all they seem programmed to lie i even had witnesses with me both my mum and elder sister but still he lied i didn't think to record it its a pity really,so its best to have someone with you and ask your sister to write a note to prove you had got there by car as they do say people arrived by bus even when not true,hope this helps.
