We have a good understanding of our members' requirements and I am confident that members of the Bupa Health Fund will have easy access to hospitals of the highest quality. In the rare case that these hospitals do not have appropriate facilities, members will naturally be approved to go to the best hospital available, which may often be one of the NHS specialist centres of excellence.
In summary, Bupa members will continue to be covered for appropriate treatment at quality hospitals which may - when necessary - include NHS trusts, but it should be remembered that our members, as citizens of this country, are also entitled to obtain their treatment under the NHS; this choice is fundamental and one which Bupa believes must be retained despite the pressures of the health care market.
