Hi how do you make a complaint to Atos I can't find the details 
I complained to a number provided by the assessment building and I got a letter which is from the dwp saying they have received it 
I contact them asking who the assessor works for and she was reluctant to answer so I said did the assessor work for atos yes or no she said yes so I said tell me how to contact them to which she has just said my complaint to atos would just be sent direct to pip for them to deal with
Surely that can't be correct he works for atos not pip

    Any complaint about an assessment center or assessor must be sent the the complaints department of the assessment company who are contracted to conduct assessments on behalf of the DWP.

    Thank you it's so draining it's what the assessor has said that is harder than losing the pip I've read so much where people are saying assessors lie and I just thought people were being dramatic because they didn't get what they wanted 
    But I now eat those words because they do 
    How are they getting away with it 
    A group needs to be formed where people who have experienced false reports can join so we can see how many are out there saying the same thing

    That's not a problem! I'm sorry you've had such a bad experience, like you say, they shouldn't be allowed to get away with it.

    My complaint regarding my son's recent PIP review bounces back from their email address...im writing to them and the DWP complaining.Its absolutely shocking, any other assessments he has IL make sure they're recorded

    For PIP you need to tell them in advance that you'll be recording it and you need to use the appropriate recording equipment and record 2 copies at the same time. At the end of the assessment you need to hand one into the HCP.
