Independent Expert Opinion

The CHG team of psychologists have the expertise and experience to provide an independent expert opinion by conducting a psychological assessment in a medico-legal context.

Whether the matter is referred by solicitors – acting for the plaintiff or defendant – or by an employer or insurer, CHG can undertake an independent assessment of the person’s psychological condition and their psychological capacity for work.

A psychological assessment is undertaken by considering information gathered from multiple sources, including reviewing available clinical records and a structured clinical interview regarding medical and personal history. The psychologist is then able to conduct a range of assessments depending on the individual’s presentation and reason for the referral. Assessments may include; personality, intelligence, and vocational interests and abilities.

A psychological assessment can be used to:

  • Assist with providing a diagnosis and the level of dysfunction associated with this diagnosis 
  • assess a particular area of high or low functioning 
  • identify suitable employment options or factors that should be considered in employment 
  • assess psychological fitness for work.
