The Salus PIP service is an NHS Lanarkshire service that delivers face to face Personal Independence Payment assessments to claimants. The service is delivered locally from high quality assessment centres throughout the West of Scotland and Edinburgh city centre.

The PIP service offers a fresh challenge for nurses, physiotherapists, OT’s and paramedics with over 2 years’ experience. With full training and on-going support via our friendly team of dedicated training managers, you will journey through a learning curve that provides professional and personal development, enhances existing skills and encourages peer support and mentoring.

Our eight week coaching programme and in house trainer support ensures you progress in your role, developing skills and gaining the knowledge you require to meet the quality standards required to ensure we’re providing the best possible service for our claimants.

We’ll ensure you’re trained to meet the requirements of the job by offering all of the above plus NHS training in a variety of topics including Equality and Diversity and Protection of Vulnerable Adults. We’ll also make sure that your statutory training such as Basic Life Support and Non Clinical Back Awareness is kept up to date.

At our quarterly CPD days there are opportunities to share your specialist knowledge with colleagues and learn from theirs.
