Private Health Care & Medical Insurance

Private Health Care & Medical Insurance

What does Private Health Care/Medical Insurance do?

If you get ill, private health care/medical insurance can pay for certain medical consultations, treatment and surgery, so that you don’t need to rely on the NHS. As well as providing a safety net and peace of mind, it can also give you more choice as to where you’re seen and by whom; clean, modern hospitals; private rooms; and access to advanced cancer drugs that aren’t universally available through the NHS.

Let’s talk through your personal requirements, motivations and budget to find the right ‘fit’ for you. Our independent status means we can analyse the whole market place to source the most appropriate and cost-effective solution, and help you reach an informed decision that’s right for you and yours.

Our private health care policies can protect individuals, families and businesses, both in the UK and abroad. Private medical insurance or health care is quite a complex product – it’s best to get specialist advice. Talk to us about how this might work for you – and let’s keep talking as your needs change.

If you're moving to the UK, read our Private Medical Insurance brochure. Also available in Russian and Arabic.

After a detailed and confidential review of your needs and priorities, we’ll structure your insurance arrangements so you know you and your family are protected, come what may.
