Subscribing members of the Staffordshire Police Federation Group Insurance Scheme may not be aware that they can access expert medical advice as part of their cover.

The Best Doctors element of the scheme consists of a worldwide panel of specialists who can offer a confident, expert second medical opinion if a member, partner or their resident dependent children (up to age 21 or 25 if still in full-time education) are facing a concerning medical condition.

They work in conjunction with the patient and their doctor to ensure a correct diagnosis, understanding that diagnosis and then developing a treatment plan.

Local medical specialists can be identified and an independent, comprehensive assessment report is provided.

The scheme also offers unlimited access to the Member Care centre - a confidential telephone helpline that is available 24 hours a day every day.

In addition to the life assurance element, subscribing members of the Group Insurance Scheme also have access to the following wide ranging cover: 

  • GP Care on Demand
  • Personal accidents benefit
  • Regulation 28 sickness benefit
  • Worldwide annual/multi-travel insurance
  • Legal expenses insurance
  • Care First counselling
  • RAC motor breakdown assistance
  • Mobile phone/gadget insurance
  • Critical illness insurance
  • Child critical illness insurance.

 Cover, which is provided through George Burrows, can also be extended to include a partner/spouse for an additional fee.
