What youll be doing as a doctor

Day-to-day, youll carry out assessments to understand how a person's disability or health condition affects their daily life. Youll listen sensitively to their experiences, ask questions and use your insights to produce a factual report to help the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) determine their eligibility for benefits. Its important work that has a big impact on real lives, so well make sure you get the time you need with each customer to undertake a quality and respectful service.

Every assessment is different, and you might work on complex cases involving veterans or customers with neurological conditions, industrial injuries and respiratory diseases. Itll be challenging at times but well support you to manage your caseloads efficiently, to deliver the best service. Our colleagues combine the highest levels of integrity with extensive clinical knowledge to offer the best service possible to our customers.
