Maximus Make First WCA Blunder- Before Even Starting Contract

January 22, 2015

Readers, here at Same Difference, we hate spelling mistakes. But this one must be smiled at!

With many thanks to Benefits And Work.

Maximus have managed their first work capability assessment blunder before even starting the contract in March.

Maximus are not keen on having their name associated with claimant deaths in the way that Atos’ now is in so many people’s minds.

So, appointment letters for work capability assessments won’t come from Maximus. Instead, they will come from a fig leaf company called The Centre for Health and Disability Assessments Limited.

The new company was set up back in June 2014, long before Maximus were officially awarded the contract. Unfortunately, Leslie Wolfe – division president of Maximus- and her fellow director William Smith aren’t so hot on UK spelling, hailing as they do from the US.

So the company they created to hide behind was actually called The Center for Health and Disability Assessments Limited.

Thus, five weeks after incorporating the company, their first act was to change the name so that at least it looks like it is a UK run organisation.

With this level of accuracy and attention to detail, what could possibly go wrong as they take over the assessment of millions of sick and disabled claimants?

    Well Maximus could not treat the disabled worse than ATOS, or waste more public money than ATOS has – well, it would be very hard to.

    Thinkin they could do with some BioPsychoSocialBullshit Interventions, and at least a fluckin years worth of Financial Sanctions for their Blundering Error. Lets spread the Justice around fairly now….. Just a thought,,, Im not a vengeful person, Id much rather spread care and consideration along with a bucket full of COMPASSION…. But these …….. sometimes make me a bit ANGRY…. so I think NASTY IDEAS……UNLIKE THEM WHO ACT ON THEM……

What are you thinking?
