Northern Police Healthcare Scheme

Humberside Police Federation are now offering members the chance to sign up to the Northern Healthcare Scheme which is run in conjuction with a number of federations within the region to offer affordable healthcare to not only police officers, but to police staff that are members of a union.

The Northern Police Healthcare Scheme - established in 1989 - is a self-financing Scheme set up under a Trust Deed to provide private medical advice and treatment to subscribing members and their dependants.

The main objective of the Scheme is to make the advantages of private medical care available to members at a reasonable cost, representing very good value for money and is still lower than most other Schemes.

The Scheme also includes an alternative cash benefit for NHS treatment (currently £60 a night or £60 for Day Case surgery) and all benefits are payable at the Trustees' discretion. Please note that the Cash Benefit does not apply to Scheme members who are admitted to an NHS hospital as an emergency admission
