We are delighted to announce that we are expanding our partnership with Nuffield Health, the UK’s largest healthcare charity. From the start of the year, the partnership will provide a service which gives free access at the point of claim to physiotherapy and emotional wellbeing support to all Shepherds Friendly Income Protection members, with the aim of helping members to better manage their physical and emotional recovery.  

Our partnership with Nuffield Health allows us to provide our Income Protection members with a range of health and wellbeing benefits, on top of our existing financial benefits. This includes a Virtual GP service, a NICE-accredited Emotional Wellbeing platform, and a discounted gym membership.

Income Protection members will now benefit from Nuffield Health’s exceptional Rehabilitation Support service and care.

Daniel Simpson, Chief Innovations Officer at Shepherds Friendly commented:

“Ensuring our members get the most from their Income Protection plan is important to us.  Partnering with Nuffield Health, the UK’s largest healthcare charity, has allowed us to offer access to essential benefits such as physiotherapy and emotional wellbeing at point of claim, aiding a member’s recovery and their return to work sooner. These services support our mutual ethos of being there for our Income Protection members when they need it the most.”

James Pittick, Corporate Sales Director at Nuffield Health said:

“Growing our partnership with Shepherds Friendly by providing mental health support and physiotherapy clinical services to their members fulfils Nuffield Health’s purpose to build a healthier nation. Our aim is to support members with fast access to the most suitable treatment plan to ensure they either maintain their wellbeing while working or support a timely return to work, removing further anxiety during these times of financial uncertainty.”
