Initial Assessments

The first step in the assessment process is a screening stage where a nurse, doctor, social worker or other qualified healthcare professional will evaluate the individual’s needs against a Checklist tool.

The Checklist tool threshold is set intentionally low. If the Checklist indicates that the individual may have sufficient needs to qualify for continuing healthcare, then a full assessment will be coordinated by your local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). For detailed information about the assessment process, please download or request a copy of our Navigational Toolkit.
