In this online web series for IFA Magazine, Legal & General highlights 5 key ways they are helping advisers support clients during today’s challenging economic and market conditions.

In the second instalment of this series, Legal & General explores ways in which advisers can support their clients amidst the current health service crisis.

Ensuring speedy diagnosis for peace of mind:

With health services under pressure, there is currently an extremely long waiting time for people seeking treatment from health services in the UK in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic. Reports indicate that this backlog is likely to take years to clear.

Legal & General’s Private Diagnostics* service gives clients quick access to some of the UK’s top specialist consultants and diagnostic test centres – ensuring peace of mind for the client, and referrals back to their healthcare provider to begin any potential treatment as soon as possible. It can help your clients who are faced with a potentially serious health problem, by giving them answers and reassurance from experts as quickly as possible when referred to cardiology, oncology or neurosurgery specialists to investigate symptoms.

Legal & General’s Private Diagnostics* is an optional policy add-on which is unique in the market. It is available exclusively to intermediaries, and covers the client and their children (up to the age of 22 years old) – giving parents that additional layer of protection.

Key features of Private Diagnostics:

  • Fast access to experts

Clients can arrange virtual private consultations with specialists, and in-person non-invasive diagnostic testing. The process is easily managed via the Trustedoctor portal.

  • Wide range of non-invasive tests

Tests include blood tests, MRI scans, CT scans, x-rays, ultrasound scans and more.

  • Multiple claims and appointments

Clients can claim for up to three separate primary consultations and follow-up appointments a year.

  • Results in weeks

Private Diagnostics are available for oncology, cardiology or neurosurgery referrals, with results in a matter of weeks from the day of referral.

  • Nationwide access to top specialists

Gives clients access to more than 100 private diagnostic centres in and around the UK’s major cities.

  • Available on Legal & General’s core products

Add Private Diagnostics to clients’ life, critical illness, income protection and rental protection for an additional £4.50 a month, annually renewable.
