On 31st January 2020, Sutton Winson completed the purchase of Flexible Health Insurance Brokers Limited, an independent Health and Protection brokerage, based in Edenbridge, Kent.
The acquisition comes as Sutton Winson look to open up their Private Medical Insurance offering to individuals and their families. Since 2006, the team at Flexible Health have been providing expert advice to both individuals and businesses alike and will continue to do so, alongside Sutton Winson’s specialist Health and Protection team.
“This is an exciting opportunity for Flexible Health and all our clients” explains David Clare, Founder and Managing Director of Flexible Health Insurance Brokers Limited. “By becoming a subsidiary of Sutton Winson, it gives us the ability to offer both our individual and business customers a wide range of other insurance products that best suit their needs, whilst we benefit from the support of a larger company”.
David Thomson, Managing Director of Sutton Winson also commented;
“Our core strategy at Sutton Winson still remains the same; continuing to grow organically through the cross-selling and referrals of insurance products and services. Up until now, our Health and Protection proposition has primarily focused on offering private medical insurance and group protection solutions for businesses here in the UK, and Internationally. However, through the acquisition of Flexible Health, it now means that with their expertise, we can provide private medical cover options for individuals and their loved ones.
As well as both our customer bases benefiting from more options of additional insurances, the other reason why we decided to work with Flexible Health is because of the common values we both share. We are both passionate about helping our clients achieve their goals, by taking an ethical and straightforward approach when providing them with expert advice”.

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
