Almost a third of assessments for the PIP disability benefit are not fully up to scratch, figures reveal.

The data shows the shocking full story behind the official figure that 95% of reports are “acceptable”.

Atos and Capita have a target for 3% or fewer of their reports to be ranked “unacceptable” – and currently it is around 5%.

But figures handed to MPs show thousands more “acceptable” reports still had to be amended or prompted staff feedback.

Atos, for example, said 5% of its reports were “unacceptable” between March and December 2017.

But a further 10% were “acceptable with amendments”, and 15% were “acceptable with feedback” – meaning there was “learning required” for the assessor.

That left just 70% of Atos reports that were graded acceptable without any changes or feedback.
