    Lightbulb Maximus - hope this is of use to someone

    Extract..
    “The Department needs providers to complete the planned number of assessments so that it can achieve the significant benefit savings it expects to make over the next few years.” The report also found significant problems with the American outsourcing company Maximus which took over the contract to carry out ESA assessments from Atos.

    Only half of all the doctors and nurses hired to carry out the assessments completed their training against a target of 95 per cent, while average staff costs rose from £26,000 in 2014 to £44,000 last year. (Explains a lot I think American & lack of skill )

    i think the worst thing is SOME people with MH needs are slipping through the net simply because there GENUINE and cant fill in forms or access help.
    the box ticking and points scoring is not a proper way to assess if a person can not be reasonably expected to hold down a job

    Someone should of told Gordon brown that this madness wouldn't work out well, and would cost the tax payer a lot more in the long run, GP's are best placed top carry out these assessments it ain't rocket science , This snowflake Fake news paper now more or less owned by the saudi's I wonder if liebour where in office would they still be pushing this type of story? And lets not forget it was liebour who changed the sickness benefits, from Incapacity benefit to ESA it was them who paid millions to ATOS

    The biggest problem for us all is this : ALL the 3 mainstream political parties are really a coalition of many things bad to us all . they do not care about us one bit the masses really need to wake up and stop voting for more of the same or worse , but like sheeple they continue to do this there are other parties around
