Job description

What qualifications do DoLS mental health assessors have?

Mental health assessors must first of all meet the regulatory requirements of the MCA DoLS Regulations 2008. They must be medical doctors experienced in mental health: either approved under section 12 of the Mental Health Act 1983 (preferred), or be registered medical practitioners with at least three years' post-registration experience in the diagnosis or treatment of mental disorder, such as GPs with a special interest and be registered with the GMC.


DoLS mental health assessors should have extensive psychiatric experience and may have worked in old age psychiatry, care homes settings and should be familiar with the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorder and how this may impair mental capacity.


They must complete annual refresher training that satisfies the supervisory body of their fitness to continue to practice as a mental health assessor. They must complete their assessments in a timely manor and ensure that the deadline for these to be completed is met.
