Welcome to the Purple Co website. I'm Jo Muirhead, the owner and principal rehabilitation consultant.
As our tagline - Purpose for People - suggests, the Purple Co team and I are experienced consultants that are passionate about facilitating the return to work process for those who have suffered physical or psychological injury.
