Ex-Atos nurse tells of disgust at Assessments

It’s clearly not enough for sick and disabled people to tell of their horrific experiences of an Atos Assessment for Employment and Support Allowance.

It’s clearly not enough for journalists to write exposes and TV companies to produce documentaries.

It’s clearly not enough for politicians from all sides of the House to debate the failings and iniquities of the Atos test and demand that it be improved.

It’s clearly not enough for the BMA and the RCGPs to demand the immediate withdrawal of the test.

It’s clearly not enough for it to be found unfit for purpose by every major study into it and for every major charity and DPO to denounce it as cruel and inhumane.

So perhaps it will be enough for you to listen to this nurse, who used to work for Atos, carrying out the assessments, her professional disgust, how demoralised she felt, how disgusted by the targets and criteria she was set, the poor quality of the doctors, the insistence that she reject a % of claims every day regardless of merit.

Will this be enough? Will we listen to this? Will we wake up and stop this assault on  decency and dignity? At some point we will. It’s just a matter of time. And how many innocent, vulnerable people suffer until we do.
