Spire wins police health contract

Spire Parkway Hospital in Solihull has been selected as a supplier to Police Mutual to provide private healthcare services to Police Officers, staff and families.

Police Mutual, formed more than 150 years ago, is a not-for-profit organisation that offers the largest independent health scheme within the UK police service. The  scheme actually started life in the West Midlands in 1979 and although it is now available across the UK, 40% of members are still based in the region.

Andy Elkington, Group Sales and Marketing Director of Police Mutual, said: “Our focus on improving the lives of those who protect us is our way of showing support for what members of the Police do.  We were very impressed with what Spire had to offer and are delighted to have them on-board as health partners.”

For Spire Healthcare, Silvie Adams, Spire Parkway Hospital Director, said: “We are delighted to be involved with Police Mutual in what is a long-standing and very successful healthcare scheme.

“We are very proud that they have decided we could provide the quality of care that such a scheme demands and I am certain we will be able to give them the sort of services they are looking for.”

Spire South Bank in Worcester and Spire Little Aston in Sutton Coldfield will also be involved in providing services to the scheme.
