Notes to editorBupa proudly supported the volunteers to take some time out of their clinics to help those in need in Greece. The volunteers came from Bupa clinics in Canterbury, Cranbrook, Bank, Devonshire, Holborn, Moorgate, Newbury, Reading and West End.
Dentaid was formed in 1996 and has worked in more than 70 countries providing dental treatment, training, equipment donations and oral health education for poor and remote communities. Dentaid has volunteering opportunities for UK dental professionals in Uganda, Cambodia, Zimbabwe and Kenya in addition to the refugee camps in Greece. The charity also has projects in the UK including a schools’ programme and projects providing dental care for vulnerable and homeless people.
Bupa's purpose is helping people live longer, healthier, happier lives.
With no shareholders, our customers are our focus. We reinvest profits into providing more and better healthcare for the benefit of current and future customers.
We have 15.5 million health insurance customers, provide healthcare to around 14.5 million people in our clinics and hospitals, and look after over 23,300 aged care residents.
We employ over 78,000 people, principally in the UK, Australia, Spain, Poland, Chile, New Zealand, Hong Kong, the USA, Brazil, the Middle East and Ireland, and many more through our associate businesses in Saudi Arabia and India.
Health insurance is around 70% of our business. In a number of countries, we also run clinics, dental centres, hospitals and care homes and villages.
