ATOS Kills Again


Still no word from Ian Duncan Smith on the statistics for number of people who have died after being found fit for work. But today we hear of another victim of the ATOS work capability assessment.

Elenore Tatton, 39, was a mother of three who has struggled with a brain tumour since the age of 15. After attending the WCA she was put into the work related activity group and ordered to begin the job of finding employment.  It can only be theorized, but it is more than possible that the shock and worry that came with this decision was the reason for her sudden worsening of her condition which sadly resulted in her death.

When ATOS were told of this tragedy this was their rather cold reply :

ATOS said: “Our sympathies go out to the friends and family of Ms Tatton at this difficult time.

“We gather information on a person’s ability to work. We pass this on to the DWP for them to decide on benefit entitlement.

“Our doctors, nurses and physios do not diagnose or treat medical conditions.

“Where there is a change in a person’s condition after a decision is made they will need to inform the department.”

To make matters worse her partner and father of the 3 children has also, while still dealing with the grief of the loss of his beloved wife, had his ESA stopped and told to find work. This while suffering from gangrene of the appendix, diabetes and having part of his bowel removed.  Let us hope  this does not lead to a double tragedy for this poor innocent family, targeted by a government determined to punish the poor and disabled for the crime of just existing.
