DWP Publish Secret Atos Origin Advice Lines

January 23, 2011

As well as Trolling Tories tomorrow why not give Atos a call.  Here’s the phone numbers they didn’t want you to see taken straight from: http://www.dwp.gov.uk/healthcare-professional/guidance/atos-healthcare/

“Advice from Atos

Atos Healthcare can give telephone advice to clinicians on medical matters relating to:

  • certification – such as completion of certificates and reports
  • disability benefits.

They are only able to offer general advice and cannot discuss individual cases of people who are being assessed for benefit. This advice service is strictly for healthcare professionals.

Atos Healthcare can also provide more formal educational sessions to clinicians by prior arrangement.
Atos help lines for clinicians

Please do not give these numbers to patients.

    This is because the ICO has forced DWP to publish contract etc. details for Atos Origin.

    They however have not actively promoted the details, just left it there to be found.

    I would just like to give my support to your cause, I know many friends who have been treated appalingly by Atos Healthcare and the DWP, the people need to complain as much as possible, target MPs, Minister’s, the DWP with mass email or letter’s, keep up the great work I am putting your site details up on my blog links section on my site.

    Just out of stupidity…

    Atos Origin is an IT company. IT also stands for Independent Tier (IT). Atos Origin has two companies with similar names.

    01240677 ATOS ORIGIN IT SERVICES LIMITED
    01245534 ATOS ORIGIN IT SERVICES UK LIMITED

    Perhaps one deals with the IT side of things? We all know it is probably just a business division sorting the stuff out. Then again it could be… WYMAN DILLON RESEARCH who does the feedback for Atos Origin. They claim DWP under their belt.

    Atos Origin also did a testimonial…

    “Wyman Dillon provides independent market research services for our Medical Services contract with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and has done so for over 10 years. In recent years Wyman Dillon’s market research services have also been used on many of our occupational health contracts, such as with Royal Mail Group and Government Departments. Atos Origin is the largest provider of occupational health services in the UK.

    The service is provided to a high quality and always on time. However, the outstanding feature of the service is the willingness by Wyman Dillon management to understand the complexity of the customer’s business and to provide professional and appropriate advice.There is a willingness to help which I have not encountered to the same degree with other service providers. ” Atos Healthcare

    (The bold text is added by me, maybe its code for something lol)

    (Taken from: http://www.wymandillon.co.uk/testimonials.php)

    Even Richard Long (an Applications Developer) has run favours for them.

    Richard is an experienced project manager of online research, including programming in several survey software packages, and has run projects for Ofgem, Atos Healthcare (Department of Work and Pensions) and The Oxford Group (HR Consultancy).

    OK, probably nothing, but 10 years relationship cannot be overlooked.

    Could try forcing their hand by saying that if they refuse it will be your opinion that the independent tier are heavily related with ATOS HEALTHCARE, DWP or the government of the day. Use ATOS & DWP words against them it is hard to denounce their own wording.

    I suspect this company are part of the ATOS empire even though the address is different, mainly because such a large company like ATOS would not allow its name to be used by anyone else.

    Could the ESA WCA system run by Atos Healthcare withstand the probings of a Judicial Review, I do not believe it could.
    To me it is obvious the Decision Making has been sub delegated to Atos, even Professor Harrington said the DM’s were rubber stamping the Atos HCP’s decisions.
    Rubber Stamping the Decisions is not , by definition “making the decisions” the Secretary of State is in breach of his powers , in which He is obliged to MAKE the decisions through his legally appointed DM’s.
    If a Judicial Review established the decisions were made by a third party they would become null and void , this would put the DWP and the Government in a precarious position.
    Lets hope Justice is seen to be done.

    we pay so much in taxes hidden and otherwise that this country should be very rich but it isn’t because the majority goes to Europe £99billion every year goes into the European coffers and we get back maybe 1% in subsidies and grants.

    I am very tired and frightened of how we would cope if ATOS have their way and take away my benefit, we can talk and talk until the cows come home but that won’t change a thing, I have suggested a PUBLIC INQUIRY, into the actions of this Government and their so called welfare reform and also the actions of ATOS and just how much they are getting paid, do they get bonus’s for every 1000 they take off benefit. words aren’t enough anymore action, many years ago I was told that petitions are a waste of time, thousands of signatures on reams of paper, shoved in a corner and not looked at, we need to clog up the postal system to 10 Downing Street. straight to the top Davie boy.

    we send him a letter demanding a public inquiry and why, and by we I mean all of us, thousands of us, I am going to bombard every website and ask the same questiion yes it will cost us a first class stamp, tell the papers the television the radio, but get everybody you can think of and tell them what you are doing and why and get them to send a letter, I want all these letters delivered between the 24th and 30th September I want 10,000 letters going out demanding a public inquiry, CAN WE DO IT, OF COURSE WE BLOODY WELL CAN. GO GET HIM GUYS AND GALS,

      I am 60years old and was diagnosed with malignant neoplasm of the prostate in 2006 and had a radical prostatectomy in May 2006 followed by hormonal treatment and salvage radiotherapy for 8 weeks in 2007.Subsequent to this I have been having persisting urinary problems in the form of urinary frequency, going 20-30 times a day and leakage of urine.
      The subsequent radiotherapy has also affect my bowels and I get frequent episodes of diarrhoea. I am also diabetic and insulin dependent ,suffer from chronic back and neck discomfort with occasional weakness and persistent paraesthesia in the arms and legs and have restricted mobility. I also suffer from quite marked cervical spondylosis, hypertension and high cholesterol levels. I also suffer from hayfever and allergic symptoms throughout the year and have no quality of life and always feeling low and depressed and in costant pain and discomfort in my neck, arms and legs and often short of breath.
      I had to complete the medical questionaie sent by ATOS Healthcare and my doctor and the Macmillan Uro-Oncology CNS treating me wrote me a medical report to support my application and inspite of this I have been asked to attend a face to face assessment with a health professional of ATOS Healthcare for the 27th of March 2013.
      I find this disgusting and disrespectful to my doctor and my macmillan nurse.
      On the 22Feb 2013, I received a letter from the DWP stating that my disability allowance has been revised and increased from the 08/04/13 and the purpose of the letter was to give me proof of the entitlement to my benefit.
      The letter for the face to face assessment with ATOS Healthcare arrived today the 14th of March 2013 dated 12th of March 2013.

      So much said for the efficiency and professionalism of all these people concerned.

    A new website should be designed where all features; tools, qualities as well as a lot of doubt
    in people’s minds. It is often frustrating to see a drawdown of 20 pips, as price must move down the entire length of the previous Tuesday. In other words, why you are entering a trade, our traders will tell you whether it’s a right move
    or not.
