I am so glad to see this site. The new ATOS Nazi brigade use a USA medical insurance claimant's form designed to reject 90% of applicants. It is straight from the USA and it has no relation to disability whatsoever. ATOS are also affliated with Experian the credit agency and they have a history of incompetence in the 'medical' field.
I have been fighting to be placed in the support group. I only left work in June 2009 after 36 years of working. Not once did it cross the mind of anyone at ATOS that just maybe leaving due to medical grounds meant I could not work, but no apparently I can take part even though my doctor says I cannot and three occupational therapists declared me unfit for work. It is absolutely obscene to be treated in this way. I won my independent appeal but was warned by the very kind and considerate judges that I would be hounded and hounded until I was placed back in the limited capability group.
What the general public never bother to understand is that if 37% say are passed as fit for work 31% of those are not and it is the questionnaire that is at fault not the person claiming.
Surely disabled people are being discriminated against? This is not my Britain anymore, it is a mini USA and I am so angry all the time since this happened to me I now suffer acute anxiety attacks on top of my spinal injuries.
