Health treatments and services

Guides to Health treatments and services

Our health plans are built for you. They're built to boost your health & wellbeing. But what do we mean by that?


We mean we want you to look after yourself. If you're concerned about something, it's time to get it sorted. And we're not talking about simply searching your symptoms and settling for the top answer. 


This page is for your information. To discover the variety of treatments you can claim for using your Simplyhealth plan. We go into detail about what happens during a physiotherapy session. Answer questions including why you would book an appointment with a podiatrist. And explain the options available if you want to speak to someone quickly, like the video GP & Physio service available through our SimplyConsult app. 


Unleash the benefits of your plan, and let's be all together, healthier.
