Our Specialist and GP networks have you covered!

We know our Specialists and GPs are good at what they do, but we were concerned that members may find it difficult to find a network provider close to their home.

We therefore carefully mapped our member concentrations against the locations of our Network providers, to see how the two compared.

The statistics were very positive, and we are confident that the overwhelming majority of our members will have no difficulty finding a Network provider close to their homes. This is good news, as the bulk rates we have negotiated with these Network providers are much more favourable than usual consulting fees. This means savings for the Scheme and benefits that will last you longer!
