To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the remarks by Lord Freud on 24 June (HL Deb, col 598), how many providers of Personal Independence Payment assessments will operate under the contract won by Atos for London and the south of England; and how that figure compares to the number originally indicated in the tender document.

In their tender for the PIP assessment service in Lot 3 (London and Southern England) Atos indicated they would deliver face-to-face consultations in partnership with up to 17 organisations from the NHS, private hospitals and national physiotherapy networks. On 18 February 2013 Atos published its full list of supply chain partners. In the Lot 3 area there are 8 - Bedford Hospital, Croydon Health Services, King’s College Hospital and University College London Hospitals NHS Trusts along with the private sector physiotherapy organisations IPRS Limited, Physioworld, The Injury Care Clinics and The Treatment Network.
