Affordable private healthcare for you and your family
The Healthcare Scheme is a discretionary scheme set up for members of the Police family to help with the cost of private medical treatment when you need it, in the event of an illness. It allows you access to treatment at a range of private UK hospitals and facilities including those provided by Nuffield, Spire and BMI, and can reduce time spent waiting for diagnosis or necessary medical procedures.
There are no medicals and no inconvenient red tape. Just a friendly team to help you with you and your family's healthcare.
