In full: Doctors' letter to the BMA and template benefit support letter


I thinks this group's enthusiasm is misdirected - surely the issue is to make the original assessments fit for purpose and thus significantly reduce the need for appeals, rather than to pressurise GPs who are already working at capacity to spend even more time away from direct patient care producing tick-box templates which may not even be taken into account by the appeal panel - BMA has already publicly condemned the ATOS assessments as unfit for purpose, both from LMC Conference and ARM - GPs are not the problem here, it is the dysfunctional assessment system
