    just read that before coming over here...

    Reports are graded from A to C, 41% were graded C. The bit i like is Atos "We are sorry when we do not meet our own high standards but can reassure that a C grade report does not mean the assessment was wrong "

    In other words, the reports are rubbish, but good enough...

    It's not saying the WCA is wrong all it's saying some report are badly written, which when you have so many poorly trained retired or Immigrant doctors you can expect.

    PIP's in Wales will not be done by ATOS but it's going to be done by another money grabbing team of imbeciles Capita any one think they will do better then ATOS.

    That's for sure. No front page for this. The future King is what matters.

    ", a government audit has found that their work capability assessments are so poor that not only must all their current health professionals undergo retraining but also new providers are to be brought in to break up the Atos monopoly by next summer."

    Obviously not up to the job so I take that we`ll all be recalled for WCA/Medical
