ATOS to open Assesment centre in Kirklees

Earlier this year I wrote to Iain Duncan Smith, the Secretary of State for Work & Pensions, raising concerns over constituents who had to travel as far as Stockport and Manchester for their disability assessments.
I'm delighted to hear that my concerns have been listened to and the decision has been taken to open an assessment centre in Huddersfield.


Whilst there are still a lot of issues to be resolved around the implementation of Personal Independence Payments I welcome the news that at least constituents will no longer have to travel impossible distances to attend their assessments.
