Have been a member for many, many years. Also contribute for my wife. This year she has been supported in challenge of solutions to thyroid problems which her GPs have ignored for last 3/4 years, and give paid access to Spire specialist. This has been very successful and we are very...
Suffered a 'frozen' shoulder out of the blue. NHS wait would have been 3.5months to a consultant unspecified. The treatment I was recommended would have been further 16 weeks minimum on the NHS - so NHS wait for intervention would have been approx 7months. I rang Benenden after seeing...
Been playing guitar for a little while but wanted some lessons to improve and get a greater understanding of things I don’t fully understand etc. The lessons are very good and very relaxed, they are tailored to your needs and very enjoyable. Already after two lessons I have started...
Why are untrained people making medical decisions on whether you are eligible for medical treatment? Despite having Xrays, Doctors letters and other supporting information regarding chronic carpel tunnel syndrome they need to know what surgeon is required. When phoning them trying to...
Received a diagnosis from my GP of Basal Cell Carcinoma and he stated he would refer me to Dermatology to ensure all cells had been removed sucessfully. His referral was marked as urgent, however, the NHS waiting list for this is 14 months. I thought this was what I was paying my...
I have been a member for 48 years and 5 family members are also members. The service has gone through the floor in the past two years. You can get nothing done these days. I have a hiatus hernia that is giving me trouble. I contacted Benenden who told me that they don't do that...

Benenden were fantastic when I needed help with a knee problem. NHS just kept saying it was arthritis but I knew it was more than that. Benenden paid for me to see a consultant and then funded a scan which showed I had a meniscal tear. They then funded keyhole surgery to put it right....
Interesting to see the other comments below, as they mirror my experiences. I've been a member for many years, so many that I can't remember when I first enrolled. 20 years? Anyway, in the past, on the one occasion I needed help, they were helpful, and matters were straightforward....
I did work experience here a few weeks ago, and it was an fantastic experience! I learnt a lot of new things and I would definitely recommend it to other kids if they enjoy guitars and music. Also purchased 2 guitars from here, and the service was great!
Really not happy with the service I have had over the past two years or with some of the attitudes that I have found. I expected to be treated well and helped with goodwill as I was some years ago for a small one off mole check. Actually most of their agents have been argumentative...
I have been with Benenden Health for 49 years, paying them about £19 a month for me and wife through my Post Office pension fund. I am now 74 years old and in good health. I stayed with them all this time, hoping that perhaps I may need urgent help in the future. Through my...

Thirteen years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer, although the diagnosis was not confirmed until all tests had been completed, these tests mamagram, ct scan and needle biopsy were in situ, I had to wait nearly 3 weeks not the 2 weeks as was then norm. I phoned Benenden Health...
Really awful experience with this organisation ,wrote to make comment on lack of services provided in my Region, they treated this as a complaint simply to dismiss the points raised and to refuse to enter into further correspondence on any of it. Hopeless situation and would not...
