Keynote speakers address
the major challenges
Despite the new coalition government’s
assurances that frontline services will be
protected from major cuts it is inevitable
that real expenditure will be reduced.
Our keynote sessions will focus on the
challenges facing Britain’s healthcare
system in tough economic times.
See page two for keynote speakers.
Time for the sector
to be heard
When we chose the theme for
this year’s event, Working
Together for a Healthier Britain
we couldn’t have foreseen
just how apt this title would
be. For the first time in a
generation we have a new
circle of influence within
Government, one that has to
develop a set of health
policies that will need to have
the support of two divergent
If we believe that the
independent health sector
has a greater role to play in
UK healthcare provision then
we need to speak up and show that the PMI sector is up to the challenge of offering cost-effective
solutions for financing healthcare in the 21st century. We need to speak with one voice to policy-
makers, with a strong specialist trade association that has the support of the whole sector.
Our insurer partners have demonstrated their commitment by participating in the exhibition and
we hope to see many healthcare intermediaries attend the event to make AMII 2010 our platform
to start this vital debate.

PruHealth offers a different kind of healthcare that encourages
members to look after their health. We believe encouraging
your clients to stay healthy is just as important as looking after
them when they’re ill. We offer great insurance cover providing
the highest standards possible, the opportunity for members to
manage their health and rewards including cashback.
This year the PruHealth stand will be shared with
PruProtect so you can join us to find out the latest
PruHealth product developments or to find ways of
opening up a new revenue stream selling PruProtect.
PruProtect provides comprehensive Life Cover, Serious
Illness Cover and Income Protection Cover. We don’t believe in
an ‘all or nothing’ approach like some insurers who will end a
policy, or increase premiums, once a claim has been made. We
believe in cover that’s there when you need it and can reward
you when you don’t.
