Putting our members and their healthcare first.

Taking care of our members is at the heart of everything we do. As a friendly society, we are owned by our members and not driven by shareholders. This means we return any profit back for the benefit of our members.


Proud past. Exciting future.

Our story goes all the way back to 1877 when railway workers needed help to keep their health on track pre NHS. Our members came first then and still do today. We now have over 345,000 members and their families benefiting from our Health Cash Plans.
