In recent years, Westfield Health have undergone substantial transformation and modernisation, with a strategic plan to diversify their product offering and become a major player in the European Wellbeing Market, in addition to being a UK market leader in the provision of health insurance. The business transformation has been a huge success and has seen Westfield Health almost double their headcount through a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisitions.
