What our clients say


After making the decision earlier in the year to move 100% of our occupational health service provision to NPH Group, we could not be happier with the service levels. NPH has worked in partnership with MGL and complements our culture and values, providing an impartial service working on behalf of ourselves and our employees to keep people at work and to get people back to work.

A systematic review of the service provided has resulted from a good collaboration, streamlining the service to ensure the offering available is the most suitable to the business needs and flexible enough to accommodate changes at short notice due to the demands of working in a dynamic industry.
