I have been referred for Return to Work Service

Your employer or insurer may have refered you to KINNECT to receive assistance with your return to work and rehabilitation following an injury. KINNECT’s role throughout this process is to provide you with the necessary support and services to help you recover from your injury and get back to work quicker. Our team of health professionals (Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Accredited Exercise Physiologists and Rehabilitation Counsellors) will work with you, your employer, your doctor/physiotherapist and the insurance agency (e.g. WorkCover) in order to help you recover from your injury and get back to work.

Your return to work support will be specifically tailored to the nature of your injury and tasks you perform in your workplace. To achieve this, our consultants may:

  • Perform various assessments to determine your needs better;
  • Visit your workplace to discuss your injury with your employer and develop suitable duties for you to perform whilst you are recovering from your injury;
  • Provide regular communication about your return to work between yourself, your employer, insurer and your doctor/physiotherapist;
  • Provide assistance with locating new employment for you, should you not be able to return to your pre-injury role.
