Centre for Health and Disability Assessments (CHDA) is operated by MAXIMUS UK Services, a global provider of health and employment services to a range of Public and Private sector clients.
Each year, CHDA Healthcare Professionals carry out more than one million assessments on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). The purpose of the assessment is to understand how a persons disability or health condition affects their daily life. After each assessment, the Healthcare Professional produces a factual report so the DWP Decision Maker can determine a customers eligibility for benefits.
