Hi,

My screen reader is having a bit of difficulty reading your post, but I think I gather what you are asking.

If it is determined you require a medical, ATOS medical services will carry out the medical with the results sent to the DWP Decision maker who may use it, together with any other evidence in determining your claim.

I think the question being asked is " who decides you are having a medical, DWP or ATOS.

It is Atos who decide whether you attend a medical assessment and not the ESA decision maker.
