Leading Wolverhampton-based health cover provider, Paycare, is reminding those across the region of the importance of looking after their own health to not only see them become more productive at work (which in turn will lead to increased benefits and even a pay rise), but to positively impact those around them too.

“Whilst many of us have good intentions at the start of January, only eight per cent of us will actually keep our New Year’s resolutions,” explained Paycare CEO, Kevin Rogers. “But it doesn’t have to be like that. Breaking bad habits and picking up better ones requires an action plan, and more importantly – it requires taking responsibility for implementing that plan, one step at a time.

“There’s plenty of literature available about creating an action plan for your goals, but it’s always worth making sure that they’re ‘SMART’, or ‘specific’, ‘measurable’, ‘actionable’, ‘realistic’ and ‘time-bound’.

“For more general health and wellbeing goals, it pays to know that Paycare offers a range of health cash plans for individuals, families, over 64s and under 25s, helping you meet everyday costs such as dental and optical check-ups, or even professional therapies like physiotherapy and osteopathy.

“Ultimately, everyone holds a unique position both within the business they work in and within their respective families, which they can positively influence simply by taking care of themselves.

“I’d encourage those interested in finding out more to call 01902 371000, email enquiries@paycare.org, or visit paycare.org,” Kevin concluded.

A well-respected and dedicated not-for-profit health cover provider, Paycare has helped individuals, families and businesses across the Black Country and Wolverhampton protect themselves against everyday healthcare costs and bills for over 140 years.
