Lying Nurse ATOS

It seems that I am not alone when I accuse the ATOS nurse for lying on the assessment form. My carer was with me at the assessment where the Nurse arrived 25 minutes late, complained that she had not had time for coffee (twice) boasted that she was a good report writer (twice) Made false claims about the distance I could walk. I was on my feet for three minutes and asked to bend forward to touch my toes, my carer saw me over balance and shouted out for me to be careful saying "if he falls I can't pick him up hes too heavy (I weigh 21 stone) I am disabled through surgery negligently performed in 1996 and no I didn't get any compensation for that. My human rights have been violated, my disability rights are being violated and I have been fighting this since 11th November 2016. I have written to Amber Rudd MP, Justin Tomlinson MP minister for the disabled and the only person who contacted me in return was Baroness Thomas of Winchester (House of Lords) The Atos nurse submitted a musculo-skeletal report which I am told would take hours to record and prepare properly ( I have since learned that this is a generic cut and paste document of which there are several different copies, apparently they can choose which one fits best. She said I could use a bath! The bath was removed from my property in 2004 because it was too dangerous for me to take a bath. Lies , lies and more lies and the last assessment carried out this year stated that I could not walk more than 20 metres yet they still say that I can walk 25 metres. I'm at my wits end, I've got all the evidence and just don't seem to be making progress.......[email address removed by moderator]

    I'm sorry to hear your experiences. From my understanding they are not unusual as lots of people are having issues with the system.

    My advice, as always, would be to get specialist advice from an advice agency. I'm sure others will be along soon with other ideas.

    Take care

    I also found the same on my assessment form, 
    She asked me about my conditions and when they all started and how they did effect me day to day I did answer  but my daughter went into details but it was written down that I had a great knowledge into all this.
    I told her I wasn't unable to bath but again it was down on paper I could wash with no problems.
    The list goes on and on and I tried to explain this when I put in for my reconsideration
    But it has fallen on deaf ears which is why I have gone forward for an appeal.
    I feel that I want to tell the board that she has lied on paper but I'm worried that it will go against me.
    I hope you get the outcome you deserve.?
