What is Family Health Insurance?

Family health insurance entitles you and your loved ones access to private medical care here in the UK. You can still use all of the services the NHS provides, but your insurance means you take control over when and where you receive treatment, and have access to private rooms and medications that aren’t available on the NHS. This means your family will always receive swift medical attention, giving you total peace of mind.
