HCB Group has been supporting disability insurers and employers in the UK and Ireland since 1984. We have a proven customer service that has stood the test of time, and are proud to have built a reputation based on integrity and reliability.
HCB Group’s mission is to Redefine Occupational Health. The aim is to change the mind-set across the market of what Occupational Health actually delivers. Rather than the traditional ‘Medical model’, HCB Group’s approach blends compassion and common sense and draws on rigorous scientific research, which is constantly refined and updated.
Absence Management, Case Management and Rehabilitation are combined together into a single service, recognising that a significant majority of sickness absences arise from social, rather than medical circumstances. The focus is on the absentee with the Clinical Case Manager engaging positively with them, dismantling return-to-work barriers, and working with them to agree a sustainable return to work plan that works for them, and their employer. Statistically, the HCB Group model returns 80% of people to work in less than 80 days.
If we have learned anything over the last quarter of a century, it is that every client is different. Insurers have very different claims philosophies, and employers have different cultures, some supportive and paternalistic, and others quite the opposite.
For this reason, HCB Group has learned to deliver the same outcome focused service, but carefully nuanced to blend with the culture of the organisations we support.

HCB Group clinical case managers are laser-focussed on sustainable outcomes. Their work is underpined by three pillars, which combine to make HCB Group a unique provider of Employee Health Management Systems.
“It is my vision that HCB Group’s service will continue to provide innovation in what is an exceptionally conservative market. We will do so with the integrity and compassion which have been at the heart of everything we do, and is embedded into the culture of the entire organisation.”
Jim Harris, Chairman & Managing Director
