“The number of cases currently with Atos Healthcare has grown.
A decision has therefore been taken to control the referral of repeat work capability
assessments. Therefore, with effect from 20 January 2014, further routine repeat
assessments referrals to Atos will be deferred until further notice.
Controlling the volume of repeat Work Capability Assessments should help us to
reduce delays for new claimants and those that have already been referred”
