Summary

Centre for Health and Disability Assessments (CHDA) is operated by MAXIMUS UK Services, a global provider of health and employment services to a range of Public and Private sector clients.

Each year, CHDA Healthcare Professionals carry out more than one million assessments on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). The purpose of the assessment is to understand how a person’s disability or health condition affects their daily life. After each assessment, the Healthcare Professional produces a factual report so the DWP Decision Maker can determine a customer’s eligibility for benefits.

Working within Centre for Health and Disability Assessments, as a Physiotherapist with us you will undertake a combination of file-work and face-to-face assessments in relation to a variety of benefits. Working with a diverse team, supporting customers, conducting medical assessments and report writing will all be part of a days work.

The assessments you carry out will focus on how a disability affects day to day life in performing work related activities, following an assessment you will then utilise various IT platforms to support you in the clinical decision making and produce a written report for the Department of Work and Pensions. 

You will work in a targeted yet supportive environment, where regular feedback is provided to ensure that we deliver the best quality outputs for the customer and the department. As part of a multidisciplinary team, you will work with varied customer bases and build positive working relationships with both medical and administrative support staff.

Required Experience

Here at Maximus UK Services, our Physiotherapists play a pivotal role in supporting our customers to move forward with their lives. We support all our Physiotherapists through a formal training programme to enable you to carry out quality, sensitive and respectful functional assessments.
