The WPA Healthcare Practice Franchise Offering

WPA LI general.jpg

The WPA Healthcare Practice Plc is a team of Healthcare Partner franchisees operating across the UK offering local people and businesses access to award winning health insurance. 

The Healthcare Practice is a wholly owned subsidiary of the insurer, Western Provident Association Limited, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.  As a not-for-profit insurer, we’ve been helping our members since 1901.  Proud to promote just health insurance, no distractions.

We have a team of 86 franchisees offering customers the unique opportunity to meet face to face with Healthcare Partners in all four corners of the UK.  The flexibility of the franchise model and ease of our online networking and secure IT systems means that Partners can successfully run their businesses from home or their own office.

Winner of our 2021 New Franchisee of the Year award Rebecca Howard says “Healthcare Partners are set up for success.  For me, it’s all about being consistent and tenacious in my approach.  WPA’s products and service are so strong and the support we receive as franchisees is unlike any company I know.  The opportunity to grow and retain your business is more than achievable if you stay focused, have a plan, and stick to it. “  

New Healthcare Partners undertake three weeks of initial training, meeting online and face to face with our specialist trainers to receive guidance and support to launch your franchise. 

A continual programme of developmental training for our Healthcare Partners, along with mentoring, ongoing funding and support from Head Office equips our Franchise Partners to excel and grow their businesses.
