I became the practice Denplan Champion in 2014, after Denplan asked Shane to put someone forward for this role. We agreed together that I would take on the role as I was already taking responsibility for all our Denplan paperwork and signing up our new patients.
Denplan Champions was launched in 2011 and there are now nearly 2,000 in the UK.
A Champion can be any member of a practice team; my principal role is to promote Denplan to new patients and support our existing patients with any Denplan related queries.
Denplan has a few different products and it can be quite confusing for patients so I am here to help guide you get the right cover that suits you.
At Lauriston we provide Denplan Care.
