When your work in a family business, there's even more reason to put health first

Family businesses are special places.You’re there for each other come rain or shine – sharing every success, and the disappointments too.

But working in a family business brings its own pressures. Because it’s not just at home where you count on each other. If someone falls ill, you have the double worry of their health and your livelihood.

With our healthcare membership, taking care of the family means taking care of business

A family illness is stressful enough in any situation. But when you live and work with the person who’s sick, you have to do even more to keep things ticking over both at home and in your business.

At AXA PPP healthcare we’ll help look after your health, so that you can get on with looking after your business. We make it easy for you to get the healthcare you need so that you don’t have to ignore your health in the face of everything else you have to do.

And we’re not just here for when you need surgery or a trip to the hospital – we’re here for those everyday health worries too.
