Rope Assemblies Ltd - Siobhan Hitchen

“Having Westfield Health cover gave me huge peace of mind throughout the process. It was fantastic to be able to get a quick diagnosis and know that I could access private treatment so I wouldn’t have to wait a long time for surgery. I really can’t fault Westfield Health. The process was simple and straightforward and it meant that I was back on my feet in no time at all.”

Siobhan Hitchen, Managing Director


Rope Assemblies Ltd, based in Retford, provides our Foresight Health Cash Plan and hospital treatment insurance for all 22 members of staff.


Managing Director Siobhan Hitchen damaged her knee as a result of a bad fall and, as a business owner, she didn’t want to take time off work. Siobhan discovered that she had torn the cartilage and therefore required surgery.


Our health cover enabled Siobhan to have an MRI scan within just 48 hours, an operation within one month, and physiotherapy to help her manage the pain in her knee while waiting for surgery.

How did we help

  • Our cash plan enabled Siobhan to have an MRI scan within 48 hours

  • Our hospital treatment insurance enabled her to have the necessary knee operation within one month

  • Physiotherapy helped her to reduce the pain in the knee before her operation, so she could keep working
