Care centres not call centres

Give us a ring and you’ll get straight through to our care team. All our care specialists have the experience and understanding to get you the help you need (and they’re really friendly too).

We believe in simplicity

Healthcare can be a hassle.

Even if you’ve invested in private health insurance, trying to access the care you need can be complicated and confusing. When healthcare is treated like just another insurance product, it can feel like your provider’s looking after their numbers before they look after you.

We’re different.

Kindred doesn’t do anything other than healthcare. We’re run by doctors, not accountants, so it’s easier for us to put your needs first. We’re here to help people like you, with lightning speed and zero stress. Our care team work hand-in-glove with our consultants to get you to the right specialist, first time.

Your healthcare questions answered

The main benefit of private health insurance is that you can access treatment faster than going through the NHS. You can get a quick appointment with a virtual GP, who can provide a referral for consultations, tests and treatment. The wait time to see a specialist, and to get the tests and treatment you need, is much shorter compared to the NHS.

Private health insurance also gives you access to high-quality care: you’ll be referred to a consultant, whereas on the NHS you might be referred to a junior clinician. Plus, you can access private hospitals and private rooms. When you take out private health insurance you can add your partner and kids to your policy, so your whole family can enjoy the benefits.

Our care team are here to find you a rapid route to the right treatment. Find out how it works.

There isn’t a fixed cost for private health insurance, it’s different for everyone. The price of your policy depends on two main things: your personal circumstances and the choices you make about your cover.

Your personal circumstances include things like your age and where you live. When it comes to your cover, you can choose who’s included under your policy (just you or your partner and/or kids), the level of excess, and which hospitals you can access. 

When you get a quote for Kindred private health insurance, you can play around with the different options for your cover, so you can create a policy that’s right for you and your budget.

In the UK, we’re lucky to have access to free healthcare through the NHS. However, it’s no secret that the system is under enormous strain; this year the wait list has reached a record high of 7.2 million people. That means if you or your family need hospital treatment, you could be facing a long wait. 

Having a family private medical insurance policy gives you peace of mind that you and your loved ones can access the best quality care, as soon as you need it. It’s quicker to get a referral, and to get an appointment with a specialist who can run tests, make a diagnosis, and start any treatment that’s needed.

Covering your family under one policy can be better value for money than taking out individual policies. And with us, kids under 18 go free, so it’s a bit of a no-brainer. Get a quote today.

Switching private healthcare providers can be quite straightforward, so if your premium’s about to increase, or you’re not getting great customer service, it’s a good idea to shop around.

You can switch to a new provider at any time, but if you’re switching part-way through your policy year, rather than when it’s due for renewal, it’s best to check if your current provider will charge any early exit fees.

If you want to switch to Kindred from another provider, we’ll make the process as easy as possible for you. You can make the switch when you apply for a policy online - get the ball rolling now by getting a quote. Or, if you’d like to speak to the switching team, give us a call on 0333 0151 203 (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm).
