Providing services to the insurance, corporate and legal sectors, HCML assists injured and ill individuals to recover and return to work or their pre-injury condition. We are passionate about ensuring that everyone who requires rehabilitation in the UK has access to quality, effective, co-ordinated services.

HCML are seeking Clinical Assistants on a permanent full-time basis to join our Corporate Health department, to provide rehabilitation administration support to our team of Rehabilitation Case Managers.

This role offers a great opportunity to anyone who is looking to start a career in case management or healthcare in general (outside of a hands-on role). We provide supportive ongoing CPD and training opportunities, clinical escalations and case support – you will be made to feel an integral part of the team! We work collaboratively with staff to produce tailored development plans that help to advance their careers and have many success stories that we can share of staff progression within the business and across the industry!

The day-to-day role includes: handling calls from patients, customers or treatment providers; dealing with queries relating to the status of a case, a recent treatment referral or booking in a clinical assessment; supporting our Absence Management services with processing new referrals and contacting clients and customers to arrange appropriate clinical assessments; supporting the Customer Experience Consultant with capturing patient and customer feedback.
