One of the UK´s most respected health insurers offering excellent value and quality

WPA´s strong foundations

Our heritage started back in 1901 as a healthcare contributory fund for working men and women. Over 110 years later and we are still going strong. In fact WPA is one of the strongest financially reserved insurance companies in the UK. As a not-for-profit company we choose not to spend money on the payment of dividends, and we do minimal advertising & promotional activity. We choose instead to always invest in the improvement of our people, processes and technology for the benefit of our customers.

WPA: freedom to choose

Choice is everything. It forms the basis of the policies we offer - customers can mix and match benefits to tailor their cover appropriate to their needs. We also firmly believe that customers should have the freedom to choose who treats them, where and when they are treated. We believe this is a clinical decision and not a commercial one. Our Partners specifically look after customers who buy policies for small to medium sized companies (3+ employees), individuals and families, the self-employed and professionals.

Our values:

  • Accessible, open and transparent
  • Innovative, approachable and personable
  • Responsible and accountable
