Types of Assessments

Veterans UK

Veterans UK assessments

Our Healthcare Professionals conduct assessments on behalf of Veterans UK which advises on disability arising from injuries or illnesses acquired when serving in the Armed Forces.

Veterans UK may ask for reviews of previously accepted conditions and also for newly claimed conditions to be assessed.

Please see the Veterans UK website(link is external) for detailed information about pensions and compensations in respect of service in the Armed Forces.

What to Expect

The Healthcare Professional will discuss your medical history and activities you undertake in a typical day. This information will be recorded but will not be a word-for-word record.

You can bring extra information or medical information with you to assist the Healthcare Professional with their report. You can bring a companion for help and support who can also supply information.

The Healthcare Professional will discuss your relevant history and perform the appropriate functionally based assessment in order to summarise how the problems affect you.

This information is used by Veterans UK’s own assessors to decide on any payable pension.
