Member Services > Northern Police Healthcare Scheme
The Northern Police Healthcare Scheme - established in 1989 - is a self-financing Scheme set up under a Trust Deed to provide private medical advice and treatment to subscribing members and their dependants. This is a discretionary trust not an insurance scheme.
It is jointly run by trustees drawn from Northumbria and South Yorkshire Police Federations, but it is a totally independent entity.
The main objective of the Scheme is to make the advantages of private medical care available to members at a reasonable cost, representing very good value for money and is cheaper than most other Schemes.
Type Of Member Under 40yrs Over 40yrs
Single £29.00 £34.00
Member & Partner £58.00 £67.00
Family £71.00 £80.00
Single Parent £42.00 £47.00
All Officers and staff from any Police force are eligible to join, as long they also subscribe to their Federation or Trade Union. They can then elect to include their partner and children under the scheme. You can remain in the scheme once retired, but the premiums will be higher.
