Chamber staff walking the talk with healthcare benefit

Published 8th May 2014 by Events

We are encouraging member companies to take advantage of membership benefit Westfield Health’s corporate health cover plans for businesses at every opportunity, from just £1.10 per employee per week.

Westfield Health offer market leading health care solutions, amongst the most flexible available in the UK. To demonstrate just how committed Chamber staff are to Westfield’s excellent health cover products, we have taken up the plan for all employees ourselves.

Having implemented the plan last winter, Andrew Choi, Executive Director explained what the investment means to the workforce: “We decided that the modest weekly cost was both affordable and worth it to help our staff with healthcare. Not only can everyone benefit from a contribution towards a range of everyday treatments such as optical and dental care, but should the worse happen then cover is available to assist with a speedy recovery. This has given us great peace of mind as part of our business continuity planning and has improved staff morale and productivity.”

A number of staff have already benefited from the health plan including Marketing Manager, Ellie Lyon, who has had received money back from dental, optical and chiropractic treatment. Ellie explained, “As a regular contact lens wearer I spend a fortune on optical accessories and was due an upgrade of glasses. As I only occasionally wear my glasses I would usually purchase a basic pair but with the Westfield health plan I was able to get designer glasses and recoup the bulk of the cost back so the total cost to me was just £20!”

Rachel Dickie, Membership and Events Assistant, was able to benefit from optical treatment just before her maternity leave. She told us, “Becoming a member of Westfield Health has made life so much easier since it helps massively with healthcare costs. The Westfield staff are really helpful and the process couldn’t be easier or quicker. The money was in my account the same week!”
