Helping you build a stronger, healthier business

When you’ve got bold plans for your business, you want the right talent to help you realise them. Healthcare cover can help you attract the best people to your growing business. And it can make it easier for you to keep them. 

With Business Health cover, you’ll show your employees that you really value what they do for you. That you’re ready to invest in their health and wellbeing – and in getting them back on their feet again quickly if they become unwell. From the IT expert upstairs who keeps every member of your team up and running, to the indispensable office manager who gets things done. They’ll know that their loyalty, dedication and willingness to go the extra mile really make a difference to your shared success

  • Help your employees get back on their feet quickly with speedy access to diagnosis and treatment, skipping NHS waiting lists, reducing time off and boosting productivity.
  • Take advantage of more flexible appointments, even out of hours, to fit around your business schedule and minimise the impact of absence on your business.
  • Differentiate yourself as ‘the place to work’ for new recruits – and keep hold of the valuable employees you already have.
  • Help keep your people well with instant access to health information through Health at Hand and our online GP service, AXA Doctor at Hand (powered by Doctor Care Anywhere).

Build a plan that's right for you and your business

At AXA Health, we know that every small business is unique. That’s why we offer a choice of healthcare cover options and benefits that you can select from, so that you only pay for the cover you want.1
