We are working alongside a reputable organisation to place SHO and SpR doctors into highly rewarding placements, with clinics based right across the UK.

  • Use IT software programmes to support clinical decision making when undertaking file-work and examinations.
  • Provide comprehensive reports to enable decision makers at DWP to make informed decisions regarding benefit claims.
  • Ensure that professional practice standards and “best practice” are maintained in all areas of work.
  • Deliver productivity and quality standards agreed between the Centre and the DWP and to respond positively to feedback.
  • Undertake recorded assessments where required.
  • Work unsupervised and use own initiative; understanding own limitations and requesting support when necessary or required.
  • Analyse and interpret clinical information and medical evidence and provide a professional and concise report.
  • Work as part of a multidisciplinary team and build positive working relationships with both medical colleagues and administrative support staff.
  • Apply professional skills and manage own professional competence and accountability, in accordance with the GMC Code of Conduct.
  • Perform other duties as assigned from time to time as required.
