How small businesses (and the self employed) benefit

Pound symbolAbsence due to sickness or hospitalisation can have a greater impact upon small businesses as they tend to have fewer employees to fall back on to provide cover.

In such cases it is essential to have access to rapid screening, tests, private consultation, and diagnosis enabling employees to return to work as soon as possible.

In the case of the self-employed the situation is even worse as lengthy sickness absence can have a major damaging effect.

In these cases the Orchard Employer Healthcare Plans provides financial support for the costs of procedures which will:-

  • Get employees back to work in good time (e.g. Diagnostic Procedures, Physiotherapy, Consultation Fees etc)
  • Spread the costs of regular treatments (e.g. Dental, Optical, Audiometry, Hearing Aids etc.)
  • Provide financial help to support nhs treatment (e.g. In-patient grants, Recuperation Grants, Day Surgery expenses)
