What our customers say

Health cash plan
"I've used this service four times in the last year. The last call was for my wife; we called at 7am and a doctor called back within 25 minutes. The problem was addressed over an hour before our local surgery even opened. Unless I need to see my GP in person, I would use this facility every time from now on."
BHSF policyholder
Health cash plan
"I go to the osteopath every two months to help with the damage done to my back. The benefits are enormous. My back pain has gone, and I can now see to the side without having to turn around. With each session costing £42, my health cash plan is helping me maintain a major improvement in my physical wellbeing."
BHSF policyholder
Care4
"Care4 has provided me with the reassurance that if the inevitable happens, my family will have the financial support they need. It will be an emotional time, and it doesn't need to be made any more difficult by worries of where the money will come from to pay for the funeral."
BHSF policyholder
Network Benefits
"This year my car insurance quote increased significantly, so I decided to look around to find a better deal. With Network Benefits I was able to get a quote that was £100 cheaper than my renewal and would reduce my excess by £430 - the service was quick and effective. I would recommend it to anyone."
