One lucky winner and a friend will have the chance to continue their New Year health regimes with an individually tailored wellbeing programme.

Clare Lee, spokesperson for Simplyhealth comments: "This year is all about celebrating our heritage. As well as our competition, our latest TV advert focuses on our experience in the healthcare industry which dates back some 140 years, and features a voice over from our very own Chief Executive, Des Benjamin.

"Although Simplyhealth is a relatively new brand, our story dates back to the 1800's when the first hospital savings schemes were introduced in response to the need for affordable medical care. With a modest contribution from their wages, the schemes enabled communities to access the medical care they needed. We are passionate about our heritage, and we will be using 2012 to showcase our history in the industry that pre dates the NHS."

Simplyhealth's Facebook competition runs from 20 February to 19 March 2012. To enter visit You can also follow Simplyhealth on Twitter for the latest, news, updates and competitions, @SimplyhealthUK.
