The new partnership will give Simplyhealth’s customers access to Nuffield Health’s network of 3,000 registered physiotherapists across the UK.

Customers who visit a Nuffield Health physiotherapist based at any of the charity’s 112 fitness and wellbeing clubs and 31 hospitals will also benefit from preferential rates and a free 30 day gym membership.

All physiotherapists in the Nuffield Health network are experienced in the treatment of all muscle and joint pains, including but not limited to, back pain, sciatica, whiplash, knee pain and shoulder pain.

Today we’re delighted to be the UK’s leading provider of health plans, dental plans and pet health plans, which help individuals, families, employees and pets to get support with their health when they need it.

We don’t have shareholders which means we are totally focused on making sure no one goes without the healthcare support they need, and why we are passionate about being a voice in healthcare and partnering with charities to reduce health inequality. We have a commitment to donate part of our pre-tax profits to charities or community projects each year and spread our donations across a wide range of healthcare-related charities.
