Assessing capacity for work of patients with a psychological condition

Doctor with patients

GPs and practice nurses play a critical role in helping people with ill health or injury to recover and participate in work.

GPs and practice nurses play a critical role in helping people with ill health or injury to recover and participate in work.

To support this role, Comcare has produced a new video for GPs and nurses on assessing capacity for patients with a psychological condition.

Presented by consultant psychiatrist Dr Dielle Felman, the five-minute video provides recommendations on how to practically assess a patient's capacity for work when they have a psychological condition.

The resource is also useful for other health professionals supporting workers with a psychological condition, such as psychologists and physiotherapists, to understand how capacity has been assessed and certified.
