We are currently recruiting HPCP Registered Physiotherapists for an exciting opportunity working on one of the DWP's disability contracts. The role requires you to use your broad-based medical experience and clinical knowledge to conduct holistic medical assessments and write clear and concise medical reports on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions.
