Private Medical Insurance

Access to private medical care made easy

Take the worry and uncertainty out of private medical healthcare

Also known as health insurance, private medical insurance works in the same way by helping to cover the cost of high-quality medical treatment. This will allow you fast access to surgeries, therapies and after-care, so you can have peace of mind when it comes to your medical needs.

Our policies between them cover:

Private GP appointments available 24/7

Be diagnosed quickly with private healthcare services, either in person or online via video chat.

Easy access to eligible treatments and operations

Including extensive heart and cancer treatments, medical appliances and monitoring after surgery.

One of the widest hospital lists available from any private healthcare provider

Choose the private hospital you want, including those in Central London (increased premiums apply).

Consultant led claim service

This means that a consultant will oversee all your medical claims to make sure you see the most appropriate medical specialist, as soon as possible. Finding the right consultant first time can make an enormous difference to patient outcomes. We have access to the UK’s leading consultants and deal with all major hospitals.

Rest assured, you'll be receiving the right medical treatment at every stage of your claim.
