About us

Positive workplace wellbeing

Want to know what we’re all about?

We’re a not-for-profit health and wellbeing provider with a proud history of making healthcare accessible to working people. Today, we make a positive impact on workplace wellbeing – helping to keep employees physically, mentally and financially healthy.

We put employee wellbeing at the heart of everything we do. Our services range from occupational health to employee benefits, employee support to health insurances. It doesn’t matter if a business has got 10 or 10,000 employees – we’ve got something to suit everyone. We’re super flexible, too. Meaning we can get the workforce the support they need, as soon as possible. By intervening early, we can help to keep employees in work and healthy.

Friendly and down-to-earth, we’re always on your side. And because we’re a not-for-profit provider, your needs come first, every time.
