As the old maxim goes, prevention is always better than cure. The increasing trend for employers to offer Private Health Insurance (PHI) as an integral part of an employee’s benefits package therefore comes as a welcome recognition of the value to the business of safeguarding the health and wellbeing of its workforce. Not only does this valuable benefit promote staff loyalty, it enhances productivity by reducing time off sick.
However, employers offering PHI can all too easily consider it a ‘done deal’ and leave it to the employees themselves to take action and claim on their PHI policy when they actually become ill – sometimes far too late to avoid a lengthy time off work for treatment and recuperation.
The answer is for employers to play a more active role in encouraging employees to undertake health screening, safe in the knowledge that any underlying conditions detected can normally be treated under the terms of their PHI policy.
This is why The Edinburgh Clinic is taking the initiative with a purpose-designed package of our most popular screening services, geared specifically to the needs of our corporate clients. These include:
The Clinic is accredited for the quality of our services by all major private health insurers including BUPA, AXA PPP, Pru Health, Aviva and Simply Health. Although organisations providing PHI for their employees would appear to be best placed to benefit from our corporate screening package, we would be delighted to negotiate special terms with other companies based on their specific business needs.
