So Capita has only got a small bite of the apple for PIP assessments i.e. Wales & the Midlands.

ATOS will still cover most of the rest of England & Scotland, East England, London, North East England, North West England, South East England, South West England
Yorkshire & Humberside & Scotland.

How they got the bulk of PIP assessments based on the criticisms of their ESA assessments from the BMA, Social Security Advisory Committee and Disability Organisations, God knows !!
