A group of doctors and nurses in the shape of a heart

We love and support our public health service.

We applaud the dedication and tireless efforts made by NHS staff, especially those working in the frontline. But ever-increasing demands mean that hard working doctors and nurses have to prioritise resources, and people often have to wait longer to be seen.

Our simple, affordable top-up cover complements public healthcare provision.

What do we mean by 'top-up'? Lime reckons you’re happy to rely on the UK’s world-class public health services for most of your medical requirements. We focus just on those specific areas where you and your family need extra cover.  This simplifies things and keeps costs down.

We’re building an exciting portfolio of top-up products, bringing bite-size, affordable health cover to the many.
