Benenden Healthcare Society, a group of organisations providing a range of different products that share the same powerful ethos. Our vision is to become the UK’s leading health and wellbeing mutual community.
The Benenden Healthcare Society Limited is a mutual, founded in 1905. Its original mission in the early 20th Century was to provide affordable treatment for postal workers suffering from Tuberculosis before evolving into the organisation it is today now providing a wide range of discretionary healthcare services to a membership of almost 850,000 people.
Benenden Healthcare Society
We offer a range of discretionary health and well-being services through our parent company, the Benenden Healthcare Society Limited. As a mutual, we’re run by our members for our members. Everything we do is totally focussed on our community of nearly 850,000 people and it has been since we started 110 years ago.
To help us support the Benenden Community in ways beyond our traditional healthcare offering, we created Benenden Wellbeing Limited. Through this we develop and offer a range of products and services complementing and supporting Benenden membership.
SUPPORTING THE NEEDS OF OUR MEMBERS
A wide range of flexible and excellent value health assessments. Our selection of locations make the experience surprisingly easy, helping to offer peace of mind and letting you take control of your own health.

Access to a specialist range of day to day living aids to help regain and preserve mobility and freedom.
Whether you’re looking for a single trip policy for your annual holiday or need the flexibility of an annual multi trip insurance, we can provide comprehensive cover for any age and will consider all medical conditions.

Keegan and Pennykid
At the end of July 2014, we acquired the Edinburgh-based insurance brokerage Keegan & Pennykid – a successful and well-respected business established more than 40 years ago. This is our first acquisition, and supports our aspiration to extend our offerings beyond those purely related to physical wellbeing.
