Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
The new “original” medical services contract as disclosed by the DWP (Agreement Relating To Health And Disability Assessment Services) shows the contracting parties as being:
Maximus Health And Human Services Limited and the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions.
However, the DWP now refers to the company carrying out medical assessments as "The Centre for Health and Disability Assessments", which I believe is a Limited Company solely owned by Maximus Health & Human Services Ltd.
Q1. Has the contract been novated to The Centre for Health and Disability Assessments Limited or does it remain with Maximus Health And Human Services Limited?
Q2. If the contract has been novated have any of the terms been modified during the novation process (other than the company name)?
