The Association of Medical Insurers and Intermediaries (AMII) has launched its first training event for specialist healthcare intermediaries focusing on SME, corporate, trust and individual policies and cash plans.

Stuart ScullionTaking place on Thursday November 2, AMII’s ‘Introduction to Healthcare’ session will offer training in why different parts of the market opt for different plans and how different healthcare policies are priced.

The event, which is the first in a series of training days to be hosted by AMII, will take place in Milton Keynes. AMII members receive discounted entry, and spaces are limited to two per firm. It will be hosted by consultant Steve Sharrock who has 25 years of experience in the healthcare insurance sector, most recently as head of intermediary sales at Westfield Health

AMII chairman Stuart Scullion says: “This is an exciting new direction for AMII as we develop new ways to promote and maintain high standards of professional and ethical conduct among our members.

“We will be running a number of education and training events over the next few months which will help attendees gain a broader understanding of the UK healthcare insurance market.

“The event will be well-suited to those who are new to the health insurance sector, as well as those who perhaps are not involved in the day-to-day sales process.

“We also expect to announce a social media training event, scheduled for early 2018, which will help intermediary members and their firms understand how the effective use of social media can help them develop their businesses in response to an identified need by AMII members.”
