Who will assess your performance?

We'll give you the names of your assessors once they have been appointed. An assessment team usually comprises:

  • a medically qualified team leader
  • one or more medical assessors
  • a lay (non-medical) assessor.

While we appoint and train the team, they act independently. When we select the medical assessors, we take into account:

  • your current or most recent specialty or sub-specialties, and the nature of your work
  • the area of practice to which the concerns relate
  • your level or grade.
