Re: Should I request a copy of my atos medical report?
No, it'll be fine. The DWP staff are just not used to people requesting the ESA85 when they pass the medical, and filling in the appropriate request forms is a bit of a pain for them to do (I know this from direct personal experience) so the person you spoke to was probably grumbling a bit. But that's what they're paid to do. You're entitled to see this report - the fact that you've actually exercised this right can't be held against you.
