TOPIC: Flawed assessment pip

Flawed assessment pip 2 months 4 weeks ago #212425

Hi there could you tell me if the pa4 assessment is found to be flawed by atoms complaints procedure will it still stand to make an award or not. I haven't received my award notice but I scored nill points on assessment report but it was inaccurate and atos are looking into it. Will I have to have another assessment or will they just award me no award and I have to appea even though they know assessment flawed.thanks

If a Decision on your claim has not been made yet then ATOS should contact the DWP, one of the things they will say is whether a new report can be produced from the information that was captured at the face to face or whether a new assessment is required,

ATOS will have the initial decision on whether a new report can be done, this will depend to a considerable degree on the notes made by the assessor, it is possible, even if they can they the DWP will not accept it. You will have to wait and see.

You'll have to request any new report again.

Hi thanks. Spoke to call Monday 14th may and they said they would hold the decision until I sent in further medical evidence. I posted something off on 17th Thursday says more to follow. I spoke to atos about my complaint about assessment and they said they would b writing back to dwp on Monday with complaint. Then on Saturday morning received letter from dwp saying payment stopped from 14th may and that I owed them money. They would write to tell me how much. Broke down crisis. They lied to me. It's Saturday I'm sleeping all day taking sleeping tabs just found strength to write this. Live alone no support partner left recently due to my depression n pip assessment. Can't cope.
