End the Expensive contract with ATOS Healthcare

Additional Information

End the contract with ATOS Healthcare which undertakes medicals on behalf of the DWP and the Government.
It cannot be fair, that a company,which has a remit to save money for the Govenment is entrusted to undertake such Medicals.
ATOS Healthcare is not trusted by many benefit claimants, and viewed with scepticism by many in the general public, who also see the company as poor value for taxpayers money.
One solution would be by Simply by using a NHS GP from a neighbouring GP practice or County from that of the benefit claimant to undertake DWP medicals. This in turn Would ensure impartiality,Save Money and Be Seen To Be Fair.
