I'm not too sure exactly what ATOS or CAPITA's remit is when carrying out a face to face assessment.
Is it to try to find alternative reasons why someone should not get points taking on board what is on the PIP2. Is it to try to get the claimant to contradict what they have put on the PIP2?
Or, is it to carry out an 'independent' assessment by way of questioning and looking at evidence for the DWP on what they believe is the position?
If it is the former then it seems sensible to give as little information as possible on the PIP2. If the assessor has nothing to compare to they can't very well contradict any statement.Any evidence you do have and a full comprehensive report can be sent to the DWP for the MR which the assessor then can't contradict.
If the latter then the assessors report is evidence as is the comprehensively completed PIP2 + other evidence.
Not knowing what their brief is would dictate how you can play by their rules against them.
