There is no doubt that, in certain cases, activity can help to improve the quality of life of people who are either physically or mentally ill, but it seems clear to me that that has to be very strictly controlled by people acting only in the interests of the sick person, and not in the interests of fulfilling any target, numerical or financial.
I hope that, but doubt if, this will be the case. I do know that if someone close to me were forced against their will into this scheme and their condition was exacerbated by it, I would be looking to find the doctor, or health professional who had advised it with a view to having them struck off.
I'd also like a list of companies participating in this slave trade so that I can boycott them.
Not unassociated with the above comment, I saw some interesting figures.
British Soldiers killed in Afghanistan: 438.
Sick and disabled who died within weeks of being found "fit for work" by Atos: 1,700.
