TOPIC: Waiting Time At ATOS Medical Appointments.2 shocks

Waiting Time At ATOS Medical Appointments.2 shocks 4 years 3 months ago #108321

Hi All, You are a bit short on actual feedback on real life ATOS medical experiences
understandably perhaps.
Here though are a couple of things to brace oneself for as result of experiences "yesterday".
One the stated starting time of your medical may not be the actual time you eventually get seen.(Shades of A & E?)
I dont know the maximum time you can be kept waiting laid down in Regs.(?)
But up to one hour was our experience,
That is if you arrive dutifully 10 minutes before you may have to wait a further hour before being seen.
Quite a nerve wracking experience perhaps for those expecting immediate attention I hope you would agree.?
Secondly all may not go as smoothly as you imagine.
Be prepared for frequent INTERRUPTIONS during your medical.Ranging from Staff popping their heads around the door to complete cessations of your medical in full flow for unaccounted reasons with resumption some minutes ,hours or possibly days later.
Again stress producing.
Any observations about this would be welcome.
