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.

Due to a huge rise in demand for our free helpline, we have a backlog of enquiries. We are getting back to everyone as quickly as we can, but our response time for free advice is currently up to one week.

We are deeply sorry for this delay.
