    ESA50 goes to ATOS first. They decide whether to call you in for a F2F assessment or not, they make a ESA85 report which they send to DWP.

    Wobble1 is quite right - ATOS get their grubby paws on ones ESA50 first. They look at it and then decide whether they have enough info from your ESA50 to advise the DWP of their medical opinion or whether to call one in for a medical assessment. You can read about our beloved ATOS and the ESA claimant journey with them below:
