At Bupa, we specialise in healthcare alone

Because health is our focus, we continue to invest in innovative new services like specialist patient support teams and access to the very latest eligible proven drugs and treatments not available on the NHS.

At Bupa we want to help you get the most out of life, which is why we offer a range of discounts on some of the UK’s biggest names in health and wellbeing, leisure, travel and retail.

In particular, we have paid special attention to securing partnerships with leading health and fitness providers, such as David Lloyd and Slimming World. This helps you make more of your membership, whatever your current level of health or fitness.

The Bupa Cancer Promise

  • At Bupa we understand the impact cancer can have on the lives of our members, and are continually developing our healthcare schemes to adapt to the advancements being made to treat and cure this disease.
  • Without any financial or time limits on access to cancer treatment, you can be reassured that all your cancer treatment costs are paid in full, provided that you use a Bupa recognised consultant we have already agreed our fees with, within your chosen Bupa hospital network. In addition if you have chosen NHS Cancer Cover Plus, cover is only available when the radiotherapy, chemotherapy or surgical operation you need is not available from your NHS.

Bupa also offers its members:

  • Help and advice from our specialist Oncology Support Team and oncology nurses throughout any cancer treatment. Every month these teams receive an average of 12,000 calls from our members, and undergo training from Macmillan and our in-house medical teams to provide a high standard of support.
  • Support from our Treatment Options Service for patients making decisions about their cancer care.
  • Treatment provided through our network of recognised breast, bowel and gynaecological cancer centres.
  • An extensive range of information available on our website, including our cancer health hub.
