Given that face to face assessments have now been conducted for some 3 years does anybody have a typical list of the questions asked by an ATOS HCP to determine points scoring re descriptors for part2 of the ESA 50 ie mental health and cognitive function.....or a link thereto.

 

Questions asked post 3/11 would be of particular interest given that descriptors changed at that time.

 

Such information should assist members to better prepare for the ATOS medical assessment, and moreover, be forewarned of the likely trick questions etc

Any feedback from mental health advocates, who routinely accompany claimants with mental impairments, would also be welcomed.
