AXA has been protecting the healthcare needs of globally mobile citizens for more than 50 years. Offering cross-border health insurance to businesses and private individuals, we support customers living in more than 190 countries. Our constantly evolving propositions build upon decades of experience in global healthcare and the local knowledge and capabilities of AXA’s healthcare businesses across the world.
As AXA’s global healthcare specialists, our Islands Health Plan is designed with the needs of people living and working on the Islands in mind:
- We offer 4 levels of cover so you can choose which one will best suit your healthcare cover needs, and 5 levels of excess to suit your budget, too. There’s even the choice of tailoring your plan by extending your cover to gain access to more hospitals around London, or upgrading dental and optical benefits (on our Core, Classic or Premier levels).
- With access to our network of recognised hospitals and clinics across the UK and Europe, we can help you get the treatment you need, when you need it. And should you need treatment in the UK, our Fast Track Appointments team can even find and book an appointment with a specialist who’s experienced in your condition.
- Our members get care and support 24/7 with our health information telephone helpline, and receive extra support for serious diagnoses with our independent second medical opinion and personal case management services.
- The Islands Health Plan gives cover for emergency ambulance transport, and provides an annual allowance for transportation between the Islands and the UK for treatment not available locally.

From babies born with life threatening heart problems, to the many mums, dads and grandparents who survive a heart attack and endure the daily battles of heart failure.
We work closely with the Jersey cardiac team to ensure local BHF nurses receive the latest training, support and research findings through our dedicated BHF Alliance scheme.

Cardiocity are a UK based Medical Device Engineering company. Accredited to ISO13485/9001 we are certified to manufacture and design new medical devices. Cardiocity were formed to change the way people interact with Medical Devices.
Coming from a Formula1 background, the engineers behind Cardiocity transfered the telemetry skills and knowledge from monitoring the world’s highest performance vehicles to understanding how “human telemetry” might enable people to manage their health better. Understanding that people currently don’t like interacting with medical devices has led the company to use design innovation to engineer new solutions to the patient interface for medical devices.
The development of the award wining RhythmPad product was focused entirely on the patient and a hand placement interaction of no more than 30 seconds. Cardiocity believe that if we can engineer products to work with people’s hands, then there are considerable benefits to understanding a subjects physiology.
Cardiocity will be attending the Rossborough Healthcare Free Health Check Event in June to assist in the establishment of people’s cardiac rhythm and to help develop the next chapter of Blood Pressure sensing.
