What does the assessment involve?
Additionally you will be provided with a questionnaire. Given the time restraints of the assessment, it would assist us if you could provide some background medical and vocational history to allow us to concentrate on the presenting injury, or illness.
After this is completed, the examining doctor will see you. They will go through the questionnaire with you to clarify any responses. You can also ask the doctor about any queries you have in answering the questions. The doctor will then continue to obtain the rest of the history.
Following the history, they may need to conduct a physical examination. Depending on your injury or illness, you may be asked to remove some of your clothing (not your underwear)
Please advise the examining specialist if you have brought further information including doctor’s reports, or results of x rays, MRI etc. Please advise if you have objection to the relevant contents of these being utilised in the context of the report.
