Nurse Assessor - Poole Mobile

Our client is one of the UK's leading providers of functional assessment services, and they are looking to hire registered nurses to work as functional assessors, carrying out objective holistic assessments on people with a range of physical and mental health conditions.

A functional assessor who works on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) looks to assess the person, not the condition. You will use your clinical knowledge and expertise to get a comprehensive picture of how a persons daily living activities are affected. Your assessments will be made up from a mix of questioning and, where appropriate, basic physical examinations. You will also have access to reports from GP's and other health professionals.

Following your assessment, you will write a concise, evidence based report, which will be used by DWP decision makers to arrive at decisions regarding the amount of Personal Independent Payment (PIP) benefit that the person is entitled to.

When you start working in the role, you will be provided with comprehensive training, which is delivered in 3 stages.
