    Went on one with my disabled son on Tuesday. We have both been totally wrecked all week. I booked the actual day off, but had to take the following day, too.
    We won't get the decision 'for a few weeks' but the 'qualified health professional' ( a nurse) knew as much about my son's condition as I do about nuclear physics.
    Gruoch - 'o' level physics - failed.

    Sounds about par for the course with ATOS.
    I would expect an unfavourable report, full of inaccuracies/lies.
    If the report is fair and accurate, you get a pleasant surprise. If it is a 'typical' ATOS report then you are prepared.
    You can and should appeal if their report is inaccurate. A very high percentage pf appeals are succesful.
    You are not alone. (Go to moneysavignexpert - plenty of people there know what ATOS are and how they work!)

    Apparently the initial 'failure' (for 'failure' read 'success') rate is 37%. Last I heard the appeal success (for 'success read 'success') rate was 80%, but that figure may be out of date.
