Health Shield, a health cash plan provider, has strengthened its corporate offering with the launch of a home assistance benefit.

Philip Wood, executive director of sales and marketing at Health Shield, said: ‘The new benefit emphasises our commitment not only to providing cover for preventative care, but also during the recovery process to help our members get back to good health as quickly as possible.’
