Assessments and reviews

Efficiently reduce waiting lists and meet assessment and review needs promptly with quality administrative and clinical assistance. Our experienced multi-disciplined clinical team guarantees adherence to local commissioning models and primary legislation for consistent quality.

How our assessments and reviews work

Xyla provides you with a dedicated team for the MDT assessments or a dedicated team for a funded nursing care (FNC) reviews, serving as the single point of access. We confirm arrangements with local authority and individuals or representatives, applying the necessary consent requirements, and contacting all relevant parties.

We embed the resulting quality statements into our completed DST proforma to present, as the recommendation. To mitigate risk of inconsistent assessment, Xyla has established a refined quality control system, adopted across a number of ICBs in England.

Reviews are conducted remotely by suitable clinicians using the Xyla checklist screening tool, signed by Xyla nurse assessors.
