Orchard Healthcare fully supports the NHS in the services provided and its treatments but in order for the NHS to provide the critical treatments required we believe that taking responsibility for your own health can help to take the burden from the NHS.
An Orchard Healthcare cash plan enables you to take control of your health, rather than relying on the NHS and adding to the waiting times for treatments. A health cash plan can enable you to skip NHS waiting lists and instead opt for private treatment when it comes to specialist consultation or diagnostic procedures. With a wide range of healthcare plan treatments covered by a health cash plan it pays to become a member, particularly as we head towards winter the traditionally peak period for demand for NHS services.
