“Thanks to my Bupa membership, I still have two legs” says Mr Davison of West Sussex, recalling the excellent Bupa-funded treatment that he received when he experienced terrible leg pain one night.
Having visited his GP the next morning, Mr Davison was told he would need to be referred to a specialist. Thanks to his Bupa health insurance, Mr Davison was able to see a specialist that same day and get a place in hospital the next morning. He then underwent a vascular operation 24 hours later.
Mr Davison was told later by his specialist that if there had been a delay in referral of as little of 3 days, he would have had his leg amputated as no blood has been getting through his arteries for some time.
