ESA - Criteria and diagnostic guidelines for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome by ATOS.
Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
I am interested in what criteria are used to determine the validity of claims for ESA by ATOS.
Specifically, those who have reported their condition as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Post viral fatigue syndrome, myalgic encephalomyelitis, myalgic encephalitis, myalgic encephalopathy.
The answer would include any written criteria or training materials on how to assess and score applicants who are attempting to claim this benefit.
