SCoD has been in touch with Atos Healthcare re language/communication support for PIP Assessments across Scotland.
Atos have met with Big Word, the organisation that has the contract to support BSL/English Interpreters, Hands-On Interpreters and Speech-To-Text Reporters/Electronic Notetakers, to discuss the issues and to put in place solutions.
Further to the Atos/Big Word meeting, Atos would like to know if there continues to be problems with the provision of language/communication support at PIP Assessments in Scotland, or has there been an improvement? SCoD will be gathering together information from around the country to report back to Atos on this matter.
Please contact Mandy Reid at SCoD to submit your response: firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing date: Monday 13th March 2017.
