Westfield Celebrates Tenth Anniversary of Chamber Plan

Published 11th Mar 2011 by Emma Sinfield

Westfield Health is proud to announce that 2011 marks the tenth anniversary of its Chamber Primary Health Plan.

Launched in 2001, the plan is provided by Westfield Health as the official cash plan supplier to the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) and is available exclusively to BCC accredited and affiliated chambers.

The plan has recently been enhanced to ensure that it continues to meet the changing needs of businesses and their employees.

Jill Davies, Westfield Health Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to have reached such an important milestone with the Chamber Primary Health Plan, which continues to support businesses across the UK.

“Recent changes to the plan demonstrate that, working together with the BCC, we are responding to developments in both the healthcare and employee benefits market. We recognise that employers are looking for a sustainable plan with innovative benefits that will help to recruit and retain staff, improve productivity, staff morale and motivation.”

The Chamber Primary Health Plan provides a range of cash benefits such as dental, optical, chiropody, physiotherapy and diagnostic consultations, as well as a stand-alone scanning service and DoctorLine, which gives employees unlimited, convenient telephone access to a team of practicing GPs 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from anywhere in the world.

The plan also offers an Employee Assistance Programme, including cognitive behavioural therapy, and a new Online Personal Health Risk Assessment, which gives employees and their resident family members the opportunity to complete an online assessment to show how their lifestyle impacts on their health and the risk of them developing major diseases such as cancer or coronary heart disease.

David Riches, Director of Operations at the British Chambers of Commerce, said: “We are delighted to have worked in partnership with Westfield Health for 10 years.

“The Chamber Primary Health Plan continues to be a proven absence, risk management and recruitment tool as well as an affordable employee benefit. This innovative and exclusive healthcare plan is a real asset to many of our member organisations.”
