Press release 29 April 2019.
Paul Nattrass, commercial director for Medical Solutions said: ‘An ageing population and a rise in chronic conditions are changing the demographic and needs of UK employers and employees. This presents an opportunity to provide access to 24/7 medical advice which can be offered via group risk products. It’s a great fit as, like other group risk enhanced services, it supports employees’ everyday lives not just at the critical times. Working closely with GRiD members is a great opportunity to ensure our service is a good fit with the products and for clients.’
Steve Bridger, chair of GRiD said, ‘The added value that comes with group risk products can be a door-opener and differentiator in the employee benefits space. The closer we work with suppliers of those added-value services the better – for our industry, employers and employees. We’re looking forward to getting to know Medical Solutions better and working together.’
Membership of GRiD provides a focused forum for sharing ideas with industry experts, access to the latest developments within the group risk sector, employer research and numerous networking opportunities.
