Hi people i have read as many of you have about the atos tests for pip. Some of the stories as i'm sure you will agree are heartbreaking and  not of a so called decent society. Well my wife went for hers and she was given enchanced rate for care and mobility (although she did kick off due to mental health issues, maybe they did not want her back) but it was much easier than i thought it would be. Anyone else had this or is this unusual?

    Hi Geoff

    So glad your wife had the result she deserves.

    We hear lots of the not so good assessments on the forums as the ones that go right don't come looking for help, so I think that the wrong impression is seen.
    I am sure that there are many who never have a problem and probably don't know that we exist

    Thanks for sharing a positive, it will give hope to many


    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
