Westfield Health completes acquisition of North West health cash plan provider
Westfield Health, the Sheffield-based health insurance agency, has completed the acquisition of a North West-based health cash plan provider.
Bolton & District Hospital Saturday Council (BDHSC), also known as UK Healthcare is a not-for-profit health provider with an annual turnover of £4m.
The acquisition of BDHSC will enable Westfield Health to grow its existing health cash plan business, helping accelerate its expansion plans throughout the UK.
This follows Westfield Health’s relocation and expansion into new headquarters on Charter Row in 2016.
Jill Davies, Westfield Health chief executive, said: “Westfield Health is entering a very exciting era in our health and wellbeing journey and we are delighted to acquire a successful and longstanding company with UK Healthcare.
“Like us, UK Healthcare was born out of the need to support local hospitals and has a long history of helping people with their everyday healthcare needs.
“Both companies share similar values, supporting the NHS and medically related charities with much needed funding wherever we can.”
Stephen Pugh, UK Healthcare CEO, added: “We’ve had several years of significant growth, and we’re now looking to provide an even broader range of products and services to our customers.
“We’re therefore delighted to join forces with Westfield Health which will enhance our ability to support the health and wellbeing of our customers throughout the UK.”
