Bupa has announced an upcoming partnership with Optima Health in order to bolster its occupational health services for corporate clients.
Set to begin in early 2020, the collaboration will give customers greater flexibility with the partnership offering customer access to a network of over 500 specialists at over 120 sites across the UK.
With over 45 years’ experience, Optima Health is a leading occupational health provider and currently supports more than 1.6 million employees at over 1,800 locations across the UK, including at 120 clinics.
Bupa currently provides over 900 clients with occupational health services across sectors including banking and healthcare. While customers won’t see any difference to their day-to-day use of the service, both parties are confident that the partnership will help them provide increased levels of support.
Sarah Melia, Director for Bupa Health Clinics comments: “We are pleased to be partnering with Optima Health to provide our customers with even better support with occupational health. It’s a natural fit for us, as we are both committed to clinical excellence, quality care and innovation.
“Occupational health is a key part of our offering for corporate customers and plays a vital role in supporting the UK workforce. As a result of this partnership we’ll have access to hundreds more specialists, meaning we can give our customers the support they need – wherever and whenever they need it.”
Simon Arnold, CEO, Optima Health adds: ““We are delighted that, with Bupa, we are creating a market leading partnership in the corporate health & wellbeing space and we look forward to working together over the coming months and years to continue to improve occupational health and wellbeing services for Bupa customers and bring further innovation. Our goal, as always, is to support healthy high performance for organisations and their people, enabling people to take better care of their own health and wellbeing.”
