    Not surprised. I was even asked what one of my conditions was. It was also obvious they didn't have a clue about all the other listed conditions.

    I too had to title two of my conditions for my assessor as she hadn't a clue,she was a physiotherapist,haven't a clue why they chose her as one of my conditions means I cannot do any exercise without dislocating my joints,it's hard enough just living with dislocations let alone purposely causing them ,they don't have a clue ,we are just a number and address on a list

    @DannyMoore The opening post seems to be confusing assessment companies with DWP regarding health qualifications. DWP have none as they're only clerical staff. That's why they rely entirely on the word of the assessors for the decisions as to how health conditions affect people. Hence so many problems and why DWP won't change the lies that are written about people. Regarding actual qualifications as some of you know I've had suspicions about my assessor ever since receiving my report. I investigated her and found someone of the same name on FB and LinkedIn who isn't qualified at all. I'm still not 100% certain it's the same person as my memory of what she looked like was cancelled out by the state I was in at the time. However my MP is now contacting ATOS on my behalf to check her qualifications as she also wrote a false PRN number on the form I signed at the end of my assessment.
