Our partnership with Nuffield Health

2nd September 2021

As a mutual, we have always been dedicated to putting members first, by providing a simpler way to secure your financial future, and our Income Protection plans are all developed with this in mind, protecting your income for those rainy days where you’re unable to work due to an injury or sickness. Our partnership with Nuffield Health allows us to provide a range of health and wellbeing benefits to our Income Protection members, as part of our Enhanced Benefits package. 

Through this partnership we can go one step further by providing access to a range of services that help members stay healthy, both physically and mentally. 

Enhanced Benefits includes free access to the following Nuffield Health services: 

Nuffield Health Virtual GP 

If you’ve ever struggled to get a doctor’s appointment when you’ve needed one, you’ll now have one less thing to worry about. Nuffield Health’s virtual GP service, powered by Doctor Care Anywhere, can be accessed online or through a dedicated app 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, worldwide. With this service you can: 

  • Choose your own GP – with no need to deregister from your current GP 
  • Have prescriptions delivered to your door or collect from your local pharmacy 
  • Have unlimited 20-minute appointments – either on the phone, or via video call 
  • Receive international prescriptions or advice on over-the-counter medication while abroad 
  • Receive referrals and fit notes

Nuffield Health Emotional Wellbeing 

Your mental health is just as important as your physical health. Nuffield’s Emotional Wellbeing platform is accredited by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence). Via the platform, you can take a Wellbeing Questionnaire which will determine which are the most suitable programmes for you to complete. The programmes are designed to help improve and maintain your mental health by addressing any underlying issues in your life. From then you will receive tailored tips and advice to help you move forwards. 

Nuffield Health 20% Gym Discount 

You will also receive 20% off a new or existing Nuffield Health ‘Anytime’ gym membership. With over 100 locations around the country, a variety of fitness classes and equipment and access to onsite personal trainers and physiotherapists, to help you maintain your physical health and fitness. 

If you already have an Income Protection plan with us, these benefits are now available to you. You can find out more by logging in to the Enhanced Benefits Log-in
