Here are what some of our existing customers have to say
“I would recommend this service unreservedly to anybody faced with a lengthy NHS waiting time, as I am now restored to better health and able to get on with my work and my life.”Alan Benenden member
“I am extremely grateful to Benenden for the help I received to obtain a diagnosis and be given the opportunity to have things put right as soon as I did.”Ann Benenden member
“If Benenden had not been there for me, I firmly believe that I would have been waiting probably 12 months (in a lot of pain) practically housebound, with no quality of life.”Derrick Benenden member
“You can't pass up the opportunity to join Benenden if you value your healthcare. Benenden provided me with a safety net when the NHS waiting time was too long by paying for my operation at one of Benenden’s approved hopsitals. This prompt action spared me from serious consequences.”Christine Williams Benenden member
“Having been a member since 1974 I cannot recommend Benenden enough to everyone. It is such excellent value for the contributions, the service is first-class and nothing is too much trouble. I recently had a gastroscopy at Fairfield International Hopsital, St. Helens and the consultant was the nicest person ever, he explained everything to me . The hospital was spotlessly clean, the staff were wonderful and I got good news - what more could one ask for!”Josephine Williams Benenden member
“My membership to Benenden has provided to be invaluable. After being referred by my GP for Physiotherapy, I simply contacted Benenden and they talked me through the procedure to begin treatment. I am so grateful that I could claim back the costs of private treatment - which otherwise would have been very expensive.”Vicky Byrne Benenden member
“I had a pre-existing set of symptoms that had gone undiagnosed for about 12 years. When the symptoms worsened to the extent that I could not attend work, Benenden paid for the specialist Consultants to diagnose. I now know that I have a C6/7 disc lesion, and other tissue damage, and am able to better manage my symptoms. Without Benenden I may never have known what was wrong with me!”Matthew Peterson Benenden member
