It appears that Atos have had their contract for Disability Assessment Terminated.

We would all do well to remember that we can opt out of that new NHS system, but we have to tell our GPs.

Actually, ATOS have asked for their fit-to-work assessment contract to end early, from the sound of things partly because the government says Atos' standards have slipped unacceptably, partly because their staff have received death threats.
