Shocking Failings in Work Capability Assessments

On 17th January my Oldham colleague Michael Meacher MP secured a backbench business debate on ATOS, the company the Government has contracted to carry out Work Capability Assessments.  There has been real concern for a long time about the failures of ATOS to properly assess people’s needs in the Work Capability Assessment process and the high numbers of appeals that have been upheld.  I was able to make a short contribution which can be read here, but the full debate which catalogues numerous failures from MPs of all parties is well worth a read and can be accessed here
