You don’t have to face it alone

Running your own business isn’t always smooth sailing, but when you’re the boss, who can you turn to? If the worst should happen and you become unwell with a serious physical or mental health condition, having a friendly and experienced personal nurse you can turn to for reassurance is invaluable. Your FSB Nurse can help you in many ways, including understanding your health condition and all its implications, navigating the NHS and other health services, finding local support and specialist equipment and provide a course of therapy or counselling suitable for you.

How can FSB Care help me?

With the additional pressures on the NHS and worries about attending GPs and hospitals, we’re finding that people who have a serious underlying health condition have many additional concerns at this time, as well as many feeling isolated and vulnerable.  

Recently, we've supported members by: 

  • Helping with pain management strategies when a hip operation was cancelled. 
  • Researching a voluntary organisation to deliver medication. 
  • Having conversations to help an individual consider all of their options regarding forthcoming cancer treatment. 
  • Organising telephone counselling for a small business owner who was overwhelmed by the financial implications of COVID-19. 
  • Arranging additional phone calls to those who are more vulnerable or live alone. 

During the course of the relationship, your nurse can also source a wide range of external services* such as:  

  • Talking therapies such as counselling or CBT 
  • Physical therapies such as speech and language or physio 
  • Complementary therapies such as Acupuncture, Reiki 
  • Second medical opinion or private consultation 
  • Piece of medical equipment  
  • Practical help at home 
  • Nutrition/Dietician services 

Is FSB Care medical insurance?

No, FSB Care is not private medical or health insurance, nor is it a replacement for NHS services. You should always contact your GP first but it can be invaluable additional support ensuring you have all the support you need and utilise all services available to return to good health as quickly as possible.
