Department of Work and Pensions: Hold a Public Enquiry into deaths after Atos medicals.

    1. Rob Atkinson
    2. Petition by

      Rob Atkinson

      Featherstone, Pontefract, United Kingdom

It has been reported that 1300 people have died after being placed in the "work-related activity group". The Atos Work Care Assessment has been branded as "not fit for purpose" by the British Medical Association, due in part to its rigid application of a "logic integrated medical assessment" to an area subject to much fluctuation in human experience. The incidence of death following these assessments is unacceptably high, and the DWP in the shape of its responsible Minister Iain Duncan-Smith should be calling for a full enquiry into the situation behind what is an escalating human tragedy.

To:
Iain Duncan-Smith, Department of Work and Pensions
Please hold a Public Enquiry into deaths after Atos medicals. This is fast becoming a human tragedy on an epic scale, and a national scandal that reflects poorly on a nation that supposedly protects the most vulnerable members of society.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
