I joined Atos in September 2010 as a full-time disability analyst, as an employee rather than as a sub-contracting doctor.
I worked exclusively on Disability Living Allowance (DLA) assessments until April 2011, when I starting doing Work Capability Assessments (WCA) for Employment and Support Allowance (ESA). From the summer of 2011 I was doing a mixture of DLA, ESA and War Pension assessments, plus some mentoring of other healthcare professionals as a 'Mental Health Champion'.
WCAs for ESA took up less than half my time until September 2012, when I went part-time and from then on did mostly WCAs. It was in this phase that my misgivings about the WCA intensified. This was particularly true from January 2013 onwards. I resigned in February and worked out my notice period of 12 weeks up until 1 May 2013.
