Fitness For Duty (FFD) assessments address the relevant issues relating to an individual’s non-compensable medical conditions and their effect on individual’s capacity to perform their job safely and efficiently. Practical advice is given regarding the management of the relevant influences and – in the case of an absence from work – the individual’s return-to-work capacity.
A Workplace Assessment can be conducted as part of the IME process to have the opportunity to thoroughly understand the demands and dynamics of the workplace. This enables us to provide a well-informed, tailored and balanced opinion on the cause of a claimed workplace injury and the individual’s capacity to return to work under a safe and suitable duties plan.
PERMANENT IMPAIRMENT ASSESSMENTS
We provide expert independent medical opinions in the form of Medico-legal assessments and reports. These may relate to Medical Negligence claims, CTP insurance claims or TPD insurance claims, and are structured like an Independent Medical Examination (IME) report.
INDEPENDENT MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS (IME)
Our Occupational Physicians are experts in addressing the unique requirements of an IME report, providing these to Workers’ Compensation providers, legal firms, insurers and other relevant parties.
CTP and MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT CLAIMS
We offer state-specific Compulsory Third Party Insurance (CTP) IMEs, with our commitment to quality review ensuring that all Permanent Impairment calculations are accurate and defendable.
We carefully analyses all the medical reports and relevant information to formulate an accurate profile of the patient concerned. These are often conducted when a patient is unable or unwilling to attend the appointment and is an affordable way to analyse medical conditions.
