ATOS Origin Healthcare have HMRC's occupational health contract. Given their record we'd rather there was an alternative.
Provide an alternative to ATOS for HMRC's Occupational Health
We the undersigned note that:
1) ATOS Origin Healthcare have been awarded the contract for her Majesty's Revenue & Customs' (HMRC’s) occupational health, following a similar contract in the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP.)
2) ATOS Origin’s contract to deliver Employment Support Allowance (ESA) assessments has been a source of anguish for many claimants, with 40% of appeals against ATOS’s decisions upheld , rising to 70% with representation, and even declaring some terminally ill claimants as fit for work. This is not an encouraging track record.
We believe that occupational health services for public sector workers should be provided by the public sector, such as NHS Plus or a GP, and not by companies which exist purely to enrich their shareholders at the taxpayer's expense.
We also believe that HMRC employees, who may have serious moral objections to ATOS, shouldn't be put in a position where they are forced to deal with them.
We call upon HMRC to provide a public sector alternative to ATOS Origin Healthcare for HMRC's occupational health provision.
