London, 18th February 2013
Today Atos Healthcare is announcing they are set to deliver assessments for a new disability benefit working in partnership with local NHS services and health professionals.
From April, Atos Healthcare will deliver advice and consultation services for the Personal Independence Payment contract in the North East England, North West England. And from June in London, Southern England and Scotland.
They will be working with NHS Acute and Community services and regional networks of locally-based health professionals.
Nick Barry, General Manager of PIP contract, for Atos Healthcare said:

“Their aim is to provide familiar health professionals, using their own familiar locations who already have roots and knowledge of their local communities.”
The supply chain partners will be:
- Bedford Hospital NHS Trust
- Croydon Health Services NHS Trust
