Healix Health Services expands Bristol presence as demand soars

Healthcare trust provider Healix Health Services has just opened the doors to its new office in Bristol as it prepares for its most successful year to date.

The office has capacity for over 75 employees and is set to create over 50 jobs in the city across the next year.

Located in Temple Quay, next to Bristol’s iconic harbour, it boasts an open plan meeting area complete with ergonomic workstations and employee break out rooms.

Healix Health Services is a pioneer in the development of corporate healthcare services, providing health and wellbeing solutions for employees and their families.

Backed by clinical expertise, Healix operates a health trust model, an approach taken by over 40 per cent of FTSE 100 businesses.

The Bristol-based team will consist of health claims assessors who will be responsible for the delivery of a quick and effective claims management service for Trust members. Trust administration will continue to be managed on a wider level from the company headquarters in Esher, Surrey.

Chief executive, Ian Talbot, said: “We’re thrilled to have expanded into Bristol after experiencing record growth for our services, with turnover increasing by over 80 per cent in the last 18 months.

“It’s currently a challenging period for both businesses and individuals as the cost-of-living crisis continues to bite. This means our services are becoming increasingly important for employers who must ensure they are offering benefits that prioritise employees’ wellbeing.

“At the same time, NHS waiting lists have reached record levels, leading people to look to their employers for healthcare support.

“Bristol has a strong reputation for business and will give us access to two reputable universities, providing an unrivalled opportunity to work with top talent in the region. We’re looking forward to creating partnerships in the city that will ensure the teams’ continued success throughout 2023.”

Sharon Burgess, director of operations at Healix, said: “Our next recruitment drive is focused on a blend of technical proficiency, related experience, and adaptability, coupled with a strong growth mindset and a solid culture fit.

“The move to new offices is important to us at Healix Health Services. We are brand new to the Bristol Market and growing our presence rapidly.

“Starting with just 4 staff, we have quickly grown to over 30 and expect to reach a 120 head count by August 2024. The new Offices in Temple Quay mark a key point in our growth strategy and a commitment to the Bristol market.

“Our new offices have boosted the morale of the employees who appreciate having such great offices to work from each day.”
