Who becomes a WPA Healthcare Practice partner?

WPA Healthcare Practice is looking for aspiring individuals who are willing to work hard. Someone who shares their values and has a commitment to excellence. They follow a rigorous selection process to maintain exceptionally high standards and select the right people. Based from home, and with no need for stock or staff, you will generate new opportunities within your area through networking, contacts, and introducers.

Healthcare Partners have had many varied careers before joining the WPA Healthcare Practice, but they are all superb communicators who share a passion for excellence.

Far more important than sales experience, is having the right personality, dedication, and aptitude to take responsibility for a business that has a brand their clients trust.

Healthcare Partners focus on the service they provide their clients. They are all trained first and foremost to listen and ask questions, so they truly understand the needs of clients. To give the best advice and never rush.

WPA Healthcare Practice

Just health insurance. No distractions.

WPA Healthcare Practice is a wholly owned subsidiary of WPA, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

You will be the face of WPA within your local community. A person with integrity, who exemplifies our exceptionally high professional standards. Meeting with new and existing members, you will advise, promote and tailor WPA healthcare policies to their exact needs. A unique advantage over other private medical insurers who rarely encounter their customers face to face.

For those with the passion and determination to run your own business, taking on a franchise makes perfect sense. Operating within a proven model reduces the level of risk while giving you the flexibility to build a long-term, sustainable business with you in control. With more than 80 WPA Healthcare Partners across the UK and FULL membership with the British Franchise Association, WPA Healthcare Practice know how to support the people who buy into their business.
