Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
Recently you sent me the following text as part of an answer to a FOI request;

In reply to Qs 4 & 5 the Registered Nurses recruited by Atos Healthcare to undertake the job
role of HCP must attend and complete a facilitator led training course which is described above.
During this training course HCPs will receive a salary from Atos Healthcare and must
demonstrate competency in a number of areas including communication skills, physical
examination techniques, a MCQ and a further test case. During this course professional role
players are employed as part of the training to assist in certain aspects of the training. This
training course is followed by further training back at their local unit on a one to one basis,
however this secondary training period can only be entered into following successful completion
of all aspects of the facilitator led training. Following successful completion of this phase of
training, they continue to have further support and training.

[EXTRANEOUS MATERIAL REMOVED]

Are the ATOS HCPS going out to examine people in a real environment after only doing "role play"?

What recognised qualification does a facilitator hold?

Please identify the "further" training and support?

What training does a professional role player require?

How does the HCP garner communication skills and physical examination skills using a role player?

How many days does it take for a nurse or physio to qualify as an ATOS HCP?

Yours faithfully,
GEOFFREY REYNOLDS
