Health & Wellbeing
Sarah Solomon - Practice Director, Heath Vets, Burgess Hill
"The Health Care Plan is always well received by the team and helps to show our team that we really are invested in their wellbeing. The plan runs seamlessly in the background, with the online portal making claims quick and simple."
Jenny Corrall CVPM Tech IOSH - Practice Manager, Eye Veterinary Clinic, Leominster
"We started offering a cash plan via Shire Insurance and BHSF in August 2019. It incurs very little cost for the business as we offer Bronze individual membership, whilst our team members really benefit from the cover. Refunds are extremely quick and very easy to process via the portal and during appraisal meetings, the benefit is often mentioned as something staff really appreciate.
The team at Shire and BHSF are extremely supportive if there are any administration queries, which is really helpful in resolving any staff queries quickly.
I would highly recommend this as part of any business’ welfare and retention strategy."
Anne-Marie Griffiths - Practice Manager, Forest House Veterinary Group
"At Forest House we have had the cash plan in place for the past two years.
We have always received an excellent service from Shire Insurance who respond to us quickly if we have any queries. They also are very proactive in ensuring that all plan members are updated regularly on the benefits included to ensure the plan is utilised where appropriate.
For those staff members who have claimed under the plan, they have found the portal easy to use and payment has been made promptly."
Simon Tai BVSc Cert VD MRCVS - City Road Vets, Truro
"We were first attracted to the VetPerks concept by its incredibly low cost but as the awareness of the scheme has grown within our practice, the use of the medical benefits that we can give to our staff has become its major appeal."
Charles White - Practice Manager, Wangford Veterinary Clinic
"Having taken our time to work with Shire and create the right package for our team I have been delighted with the results. Not only have we been able to provide all our team the opportunity to have private healthcare, but also added the cash plan to ensure we could truly offer access to everything. Our team received it with open arms, and some of those sceptical at the beginning have since added into the program. Shire helped us at each step, and were patient, ensuring they were delivering exactly what we needed for our team.To work with a company like this, builds trust. In a world full of doubt, one takes trust where it is found. My trust is in Shire and the wonderful team they nurture."
Vicky Robinson - Director, Vet Dynamics
"We’d always been on the lookout for something to benefit the team and help them to feel special, and when Keith Dickinson showed us the VetPerks offering we thought it might tick a few boxes. A few years on, we are all hooked; getting cashback on routine consultations and treatments, and our premiums actually reduced this year!Definitely worth a look to enhance your employment offering."
"Olivia's help and support with the renewal of my health insurance has been amazing. The information she has given to me has been clear and any questions that I have asked have been promptly answered. I really couldn't have asked for more, thank you."
Verity Patch-Davies - The Veterinary Specialists, Hitchin
"I have always found Shire to be professional and quick to respond when dealing with our account. Their communication is of a very high standard and they strive to proactively inform me of health and wellbeing products that are right for our business."
Mark o'Byrne - IVC Evidensia UK
"I hadn't heard of Vitality before, but since being put in contact with them, I have been nothing other than impressed.
Abbie has responded to every email almost immediately, has been extremely helpful, polite courteous and personable throughout. She is an absolute credit to Shire and a shining example of what customer service should be especially during these difficult times when online support is all that is available"
