Award-winning Employee Support Networks - As we strive to be diverse and inclusive, you'll have access to seven Employee Support Networks that will be on hand to advise you in different areas: Members of the Armed Forces (Armed Forces Network, which received the Golden Award 2016), Generational Diversity (Aeon Network), Ability (Adapt Network), Gender (Aspire Network), LGBT+ and friends (Pride Network), Cultural (Together Network) and our latest addition the Return to Work Network
Your primary role will be to source clinical data from external health professionals, such as GPs, specialist nurses and consultants. You’ll use this information to critically analyse medical evidence to complete a paper based report in line with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) guidelines for Personal Independence Payment (PIP), a benefit designed to help support people who are living with long-term health conditions or disabilities. You’ll also be asked to liaise with end of life services to prepare terminal illness cases to support claimants in the PIP process, swiftly and compassionately.
On a daily basis you will be responsible for ensuring claimants are supported through the process by using your clinical skills and expertise.
This is an office based role and no two days will ever be the same. Given the wide range of conditions and disabilities you will be analysing, each day will contribute to your expanding clinical knowledge.
You’ll receive comprehensive training and have the ongoing support from a range of health professionals.
