Tomorrow (24th January) is the second National Day of Protest Against Benefit Cuts with actions and events taking place around the country.
Amongst those visited on the day will include notorious poverty pimps Atos Origin, architects of the vicious system of testing for health related benefits which has seen people with terminal cancer declared fit for work.
If you can’t make an event in person, or even if you can and have a spare five minutes, why not rings one of Atos’ top secret advice lines and tell them what you think.
Here’s the phone numbers they didn’t want you to see taken straight from: http://www.dwp.gov.uk/healthcare-professional/guidance/atos-healthcare/
“Advice from Atos
Atos Healthcare can give telephone advice to clinicians on medical matters relating to:
* certification – such as completion of certificates and reports
* disability benefits.
They are only able to offer general advice and cannot discuss individual cases of people who are being assessed for benefit. This advice service is strictly for healthcare professionals.
Atos Healthcare can also provide more formal educational sessions to clinicians by prior arrangement.
