About us

Our company

Established in 2008, we help claims managers in the insurance market to manage their claims effectively by providing high quality specialised assessments together with timely return to work solutions

Our approach

We work with a number of insurers and reinsurers to bring an independent approach and range of expertise. We know each claim is different which is why we’ve gained a reputation for having a hands-on and proactive approach to rehabilitation. After we’ve discussed your case, we build a completely bespoke package with everything you need, and nothing you don’t.

Our experience

We understand your needs/the insurance market so can deliver assessments cost-effectively and to a very high standard. We have particular expertise in working with more complex cases and have had excellent results in achieving sustained return to work for these individuals.
