Support is ongoing and will allow you to become a proficient and qualified Health & Disability Analyst, an additional qualification attained after accreditation.

Due to the broad range of conditions and disabilities you will encounter, each day will be different and varied. There are clear prospects for career advancement and professional development with your existing clinical knowledge being enhanced through the varied nature of the role.

You will use your existing and newly acquired skills to determine how a person's health condition or disability is impacting their daily life, whilst recognising that individuals may be affected in different ways.

While the role is autonomous, you will have the excellent benefit of being able to share knowledge with a team made up of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, paramedics and nurses from the fields of mental health, general nursing and learning disabilities.
