  • Change your behaviour

    In order to break a bad habit such as smoking, or take up a beneficial one like going to the gym, we need to consider how we can change our behaviour. Most people are often highly motivated to make positive changes, but they need to be aware of the behaviours they need to change or introduce to produce the desired outcome

How can we help you with health insurance today?

With our partners ActiveQuote Health[1] we can help you compare health insurance quotes tailored to meet your budget and needs.

A health insurance policy can give you access to a private consultant at a hospital of your choice and at a time that suits you or your family.

Health insurance is more accurately known as private medical insurance, because it pays for you to have private treatment if you fall ill or get injured.

In the UK, many healthcare services are available free of charge with the National Health Service (NHS), but health insurance can still give you plenty of additional benefits.

You can avoid lengthy NHS queues and receive treatment at a private hospital, recovering in your own en-suite room.

Simply choose when you'd like your cover to start and provide a few personal details about you and anyone else you want covered, including their age and whether they smoke.

You'll need to enter your postcode and give us an idea of your budget so that we can return quotes based on your requirements and location.

It's vital that you provide accurate information throughout - inaccuracies may invalidate your policy in the event of a claim.
