Our assistance team and service structure enables proactive management and continuous governance of every case. Supported by our case management system, processes, and patient centred approach, the teams ensure that customers are kept informed and their case managed from the moment they first contact us through to the moment their episode of care is over or they return home.

Where necessary they can offer evacuation services for political unrest, natural disaster and terrorism.
