Welcome to our annual report for 2017

Taking a look back at the successes of the past year and looking forwards to opportunities over the next year and beyond.

For 146 years we’ve been helping people to make the most of life through better everyday health. In 2017 Simplyhealth and Denplan united under one Simplyhealth brand and today we’re proud to be the UK’s leading provider of health and dental cash plans, Denplan dental payment plans and pet health plans. We help over three million people across the UK access the health and care products, services and support that they need, when they need them and at a price they can afford. We’re also very proud to donate 10% of our pre-tax profits to health-related charitable activities every year, amounting to £1.13 million in 2017 while our Simplyhealth Great Run Series partnership raised an additional £42.6 million for charity.

The NHS is incredible, but the reality is it was never created to cater for every healthcare need and nor is it able to. That is why we have always had a place alongside it, helping people to take control of their healthcare in different ways.
