There is certainly no harm in phoning the assessment provider if it would make you feel less worried.

well the letter came...they wanted me to attend on 31st was hoping for
a home ass: anyway called them to change date and venue nearer me
which they obliged so now its from 31st changed to 2nd nov

Do I call DWP or Atos for permission to record the interview got the two
recorders.. anyone familiar with the wandsworth atos centre...

I will be going by taxi...having a nosebleed at the mo from the stress
surely its a health and safety issue if I have one there as I have Hep C?
Cant walk more than a few steps without the ticker bursting into a frenzy
pain is awful but don't want be comatose on the day with painkillers

You need to write to or meal ATOS

Contact ATOS

Have a look at the following regarding Health & Safety issues, it's aimed at employers but I would expect the bulk of it to be applicable to ATOS in the context of an assessment.

do you think it will go against me if I request the interview
to be recorded?

I have already informed atos of nosebleeds and HCV
it didn't seem to bother them so I guess have to manage
it somehow
