DWP Dumps £500m Per Year Disability Benefits Assessor Atos.

ATOS Healthcare has been declared "unfit for work" and have been dumped by the Department for Work and Pensions, TBG can disclose.

Atos was hired by the government and given £500m per year to realise how many disability benefit claimants were actually 'fit-for-work' and has faced a barrage of criticism ever since.

Disability minister Mike Penning told MPs recently that the 600,000 appeals against the Atos assessments since their introduction meant there was, "real concern" about quality and capability of the organisation.
