Hospital Choices

A vital part of any Private Health Insurance scheme is the availability of the private hospitals and medical facilities, in which treatment may be given. With General & Medical whichever level of cover you choose, you’ll have access to over 750 of some of the best private hospitals and medical facilities throughout the UK.

Corporate Health Insurance Hospital Choices

At General & Medical, we have one of the largest selections of hospitals and medical facilities compared to any UK health insurer. We call these our Participating Hospitals and they include the majority of the leading national private hospital groups and the NHS private patient units, giving members access to the most modern facilities available in the UK.

Most of our Participating Hospitals provide a single private room with en-suite facilities for in-patient accommodation, together with a choice of menus, flexible visiting times and other facilities consistent with a modern private facility. This gives members timely access, privacy and the dedicated care and comfort they deserve.

The cost of treatment between different facilities can vary enormously so we have grouped our Participating Hospitals to give you three levels of choice. In this way, we are able to reflect the lower cost of treatment at certain facilities by reducing premiums according to the hospitals you choose.

First Choice, Freedom and Premium Hospital lists are available options throughout the Business Flex Range
