Westfield Health has been named Best Cash Plan Provider’at the Health Insurance Awards.

The Sheffield-based firm beat tough competition to win the title for the sixth time, while also notching up its third award in less than a month.

Westfield also won the Best Health Cash Plan Provider Award at the Moneyfacts Investment Life and Pensions Awards and the Specialist/Innovative Product of the Year Award for its Hospital Treatment Insurance product at the COVER Excellence Awards this month.

Westfield Health’s Steve Sharrock said: “It has been a fantastic year for Westfield.

“We’ve unveiled Hospital Treatment Insurance – a new and innovative concept in health insurance that provides prompt access to private surgery and medical treatments, and introduced new services to our range of cash plans, including an expert second opinion service Best Doctors, and a retail discount scheme, Westfield Rewards .

“The health insurance market is an extremely competitive place at the moment and providers are having to innovate and evolve more than ever as the uncertainty in the NHS continues.

“But by working closely with intermediaries we have enhanced our understanding of customers’ needs and been able to adapt our products and services accordingly.”
