Keeping the whole rugby community healthy

We're the trusted healthcare partner to England Rugby and the official lead partner for the RugbySafe programme. And we understand it’s not always easy to talk to a GP when you need to, whether that be after training or a match, or even in the changing room. We can change that. As a Simplyhealth member, you can be offered an appointment within hours.

Our health plans give you access to 24/7 online GP appointments and mental health support. Plus fast money back towards face-to-face health appointments, like dental treatments, visits to the optician, physio, podiatry and more.

Let’s talk and make a difference to women’s health

Women hugging on the rugby pitch

At Simplyhealth, we want to empower women to have conversations on all aspects of their health, at all life stages with all the people in their lives. Together with our partner, England Rugby we want to have those difficult conversations and address the impact of women’s health on the rugby community and the growth of the game.


We sat down with the Red Roses, former England Women Sevens player Heather Fisher, and members of the amateur game, raising women’s health issues that are often left in the shadows on and off the rugby pitch. 

Mental wellbeing - keeping the rugby community healthy

Engage, Encourage, Equip 


At Simplyhealth, we believe that good health is the foundation for good life. Together with our partners, England Rugby, we understand clubs are the heart of many communities, often playing a vital role in keeping people happy and healthy. In fact, it’s an important reason that many play the game we love.


We’ve been working with the Mental Health Foundation to develop resources, to engage people in conversations around mental wellbeing, encourage kind cultures and equip people throughout the game with the knowledge to be able to support each other.  information and signposting to support clubs and communities within the game.


This resource that has been created specifically for the community game includes information and signposting to support people finding specialist help. Together, we can break down the barriers to our collective mental health.

Removing healthcare barriers for RFU employees

With such a disparate range of departments and employee requirements, the RFU needs a robust healthcare strategy. 

As such it chose Simplyhealth’s Denplan dental cover to provide all its employees with free access to dental care. 

As businesses, we have a shared heritage – since 1871, the England Rugby Rose has been a mark of quality, success and integrity. Similarly, Simplyhealth has been helping people stay healthy since 1872. So we’re excited to be the trusted healthcare partner to England Rugby, giving us the opportunity to support RFU in making rugby a safe game to play and providing a platform for us to influence health and wellbeing.
