Nurse Functional Assessor
Meridian Business Support is currently recruiting registered Nurses for an exciting and challenging opportunity to become an accredited Functional Assessor. Within this role, you will be responsible for using your clinical knowledge and expertise to carry out medical assessments and examinations on people's claims for disability benefit payments. 
You will meet with individuals face-to-face through a 1-1 consultation, to assess how health conditions and disabilities can impact on people's daily living activities.
