Pace Rehabilitation’s experienced and specialist clinicians are trained and mentored in delivering comprehensive reports and conducting assessments.
We accept instructions for reports in accordance with the rehabilitation code, or to be used in court. Reports intended for court fulfill the requirements of the Civil Procedure Rules Part 35 and include quantum calculations for clinical services and equipment indicated within the scope of our reporting.
Regardless of the report type, the clinical assessment is the same. It is the level of detail in the subsequent report that differs
- Immediate Needs Assessments – In line with The Rehabilitation Code, INA reports are not for use in the litigation process, but to identify and cost short term needs that facilitate an efficient and conclusive rehabilitation process. The report includes a detailed and reasoned rationale behind the recommendations. This type of report is generally instructed by a Case Manager, or a third party, on behalf of their client, where justification of prescription is required.
- Free of Charge Assessments (Prosthetic) – A FOCA consists of an outline of our clinicians’ recommended prosthetic prescription and estimated costs (with any associated therapy costs) in the form of a letter. No reasoning/rationale is included for their recommendations/prescriptions, so it typically suited to a self-referring/self-funded patient.
- Initial Assessment or Self-referral Assessment (Orthotic) – For less complex presentations, requiring orthotic intervention. Charged at an hourly clinical rate.
- Quantum Reports. Tailored to instructions, these reports will typically include an opinion and prognosis as well as cost estimates for private rehabilitation treatment and associated equipment as support for calculations on quantum.
