On behalf of our client we are currently looking for health care professionals such as Registered General Nurses, Mental Health Nurses and Learning Disability Nurses who are searching for their next career move. This opportunity is working for the NHS as a Clinical Assessor that will allow you to have an excellent work life balance and have normal working hours of Monday – Friday 9am till 5pm and will now be home based. This role is ideal for those who are looking for a change from the hands-on clinical role but will still allow you to keep your NMC registration and will go towards your CPD.

What does working as a Clinical Assessor consist of?
Becoming a Clinical Assessor will provide you with a completely new challenge and allow you to add to your current clinical skill set. You would be working from home conducting telephone assessments with claimants of the Personal Independence Payment. This assessment will entail gathering accurate clinical and social history around the individual’s functional capability whilst carrying out everyday tasks.  A full report will then be written based on your findings which would be used in the decision-making process; however, you would not be the decision maker, nor would you provide any treatment or diagnose conditions.

Benefits include, but aren't limited to;

  • Transfer all of your current NHS entitlements
  • Full training and on-going support from a team of dedicated training managers
  • 8 weeks coaching programme and an inhouse trainer 
  • NHS training in a variety of topics and will receive statutory training.
  • Quarterly CPD days
  • Formal Disability Analyst Accreditation at the end of your training.

Requirements:
You do not require to have any previous experience working as a Clinical Assessor as you will receive an in-depth training programme before you start assessing alone. You do, however, have to be a registered nurse (RGN, RMN, RNLD) and have 2 years of post-graduate experience. Even though this is a Band 6 position you do not have to currently be Band 6 to apply.
