Sir Thomas Wharton Community College

“Introducing the health plan was extremely straightforward and has been a massive success. Staff are very helpful and knowledgeable, and the claims system is easy and quick. The cover is of great benefit, both to the college and our staff, and we happily recommend it to other Co-operative schools and colleges.”

Julie Pawson, Head of Administration
