Introducing Personal Health from AXA PPP healthcare

Personal Health is the next generation of private healthcare insurance, giving you access to treatment and care for the things that matter most.

Benefits of Personal Health includes:

  • Being able to go straight to the treatment you need, whether it’s seeing one of the 24,000 specialists and consultants who are experts in their field, or starting treatment the same day with exercises from AXA PPP healthcare’s in-house team of physiotherapists.

  • In-patient and day-patient treatment at a network of over 250 hospitals.

  • Access to the approved licensed drugs and proven treatments you need.

  • Surgery as an out-patient.

  • Extensive heart and cancer cover and care, including radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

  • Access to AXA PPP healthcare’s Fast Track team, who are on hand to find a specialist at a time and place right for you – they will even book the appointment.

  • The option of a second opinion without it affecting your chosen out-patient allowance.

  • 24/7 telephone and online support to help you stay healthy.

Why go private?

  • No need to worry about long NHS waiting lists

    With private healthcare insurance, you could see a specialist and get the treatment you need quickly.

  • Private facilities

    Facilities in AXA PPP healthcare’s directory of hospitals have been carefully chosen for  their quality, value for money and range of services provided. You'll have your own comfortable room, usually with an en-suite

  • Choose a convenient time

    You can often choose the day of your appointment or treatment too, so it's easier to fit your hospital visit around work or family commitments

AXA PPP healthcare’s Directory of Hospitals and Personal Health Specialists

The Directory of Hospital includes details of the hospitals that Personal Health members can use. AXA PPP healthcare would always recommend that if you need treatment, you have it at one of the hospitals on the list. This will mean you can go ahead with your treatment knowing that fees will be paid. Personal Health specialists are chosen specifically to provide treatment to our customers.
