Formed in 1919, Westfield Health is a UK-based not for profit organisation which provides healthcare plans to private and public sector organisations and blue-chip companies.

Westfield operates healthcare plans for more than 360,000 policyholders throughout the UK and more than 9,000 organisations nationally operate a Westfield plan for their employees. The organisation makes substantial annual donations to the National Health Service and medically related charities.

Most Westfield Health plans provide an allowance towards the cost of dental and optical treatment, physiotherapy, acupuncture, osteopathy, chiropractic treatment, specialist consultation and also include access to a freephone 24-hour counselling and advice line.

In October 2007, Westfield won the prestigious ‘Best Healthcare Cash Plan Provider’ award in the Health Insurance Magazine Awards 2007 for a fourth consecutive year.

Westfield has its head office based in Sheffield, UK and is a shirt sponsor of both Sheffield United F.C. and Sheffield Wednesday F.C. for the 2011/2012 football season. [1]
