We recently held our annual Healthcare Partner Conference at the Staverton De Vere Estate in Northamptonshire. This was a great event which enabled our Healthcare Partners to join together in a number of breakout sessions including: Validium - further enhancing knowledge on our Employee Assistance Provider, LinkedIn – how to utilise for your business, and IT refreshers.
This was also an opportunity for us to reflect on 2018 and reward Healthcare Partners for their hard work. There were a fantastic 27 Partners who completed their Certificate in Insurance (Cert CII) in the last 6 months, making a total of 57 Healthcare Partners who are qualified at Cert CII level or equivalent. This demonstrates the high level of commitment to their role and drives professionalism throughout the industry.
The Regional Healthcare Partner awards which were nominated by colleagues went to Ross Le Jeune, Scott Turner, and Simon Marks. The New Practice Healthcare Partner of the Year award went to Michelle Wimsey who has been a Partner for just over a year but has reaped much success from her continuous hard work.
The overall winner who took home the Healthcare Partner of the Year Award 2018 was Mark Tomlinson who has demonstrated total commitment and support to the South West region throughout the year. Congratulations Mark!
Attending the open day at Head Office was extremely useful and helped reassure me that I was perusing a good opportunity. It allowed me to learn more about WPA, meet a number of staff and experience the culture and transparency of the organisation. It certainly played a crucial role in my decision making process about becoming a Healthcare Partner.Catherine Bennett – Healthcare Partner since December 2014
My advice for anyone looking to become a Healthcare Partner is just do it! If there is a practice available near you then absolutely go for it. The training, the support, the help, the advice - it’s been the best decision that I’ve made.Ross Le Jeune - Healthcare Partner since 2016
Attending an Open Day and seeing the slick and technologically advanced operation behind the scene convinced me I was making the right choice. By the time I left the Open Day, I had made up my mind that WPA was a company which lived the business values that matched my own.David Rollock – Healthcare Partner since September 2014
