Petition ATOS assessments
We are concerned by reports of a high number of genuinely ill and disabled people, including those who are terminally ill, wrongly being declared fit for work by ATOS medical assessors.
These errors cause hardship and distress to some of the most vulnerable members of society and cost the tax payer large sums in appeals.
We therefore petition the government to look into the process of these medical assessments and ensure that the necessary changes are made to create a fair system that protects the sick and disabled.
