Our Cancer Pledge

We understand the importance of providing extensive cover and support at every stage of cancer treatment.

Our cancer pledge means we’ll cover the cancer treatment and palliative care you need, as recommended by your specialist.

We want to make things as comfortable as possible following your cancer treatment, so we’ll provide extensive cover for aftercare, including consultations with a dietitian, as well as money towards prostheses and a wig.
