Wednesday, November 17, 2010
Atos Origin, the first company to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with Francis Maude’s Cabinet Office, has announced its healthcare division has been awarded a three year contract extension by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) worth in excess of £300 million.
Under the terms of the extension, Atos Healthcare is to continue delivering medical advice and assessment services in a bid to “support the UK Government’s welfare reform agenda”. Atos Heathcare is the number one occupational health provider in the UK.
It’s claimed the extension will “help people to move into and progress in work, while supporting the most vulnerable”.
Keith Wilman, CEO for Atos Origin said, “We have a successful and longstanding relationship with the Department for Work and Pensions and are committed to supporting the Government’s welfare reform agenda to help those who are able get back to work and regain their independence.”
