Meridian Business Support is one of the UK's leading providers of permanent and temporary recruitment to the Nursing and Health and Social Care sectors. We offer bespoke consultancy services to clients and candidates alike.

As part of the Government's welfare reform agenda, the Department for Work and Pensions have introduced a new benefit called the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) replacing the Disability Living Allowance.

PIP is designed to better reflect today's understanding of disability and is focused on helping with the extra costs disabled people face to lead independent lives.
