Health Insurance Awards 2018: The winners

Celebrating intermediary and provider excellence

Around 900 people gathered at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane for a black tie gala dinner to celebrate the Health Insurance Awards 2018.

Celebrity host, comedian Jimmy Carr, entertained guests as he handed out awards to those individuals and companies that have excelled over the past year.

There was huge applause as Christopher Claridge-Ware graciously accepted the Outstanding Contribution Award for the inspirational and entrepreneurial impact he has had – and continues to have – on the world of broking.

Willis Towers Watson was named Intermediary of the Year, while Aviva UK Health was named Company of the Year.

The full list of winners is below. Look out for film footage, all the photos and a celebratory supplement in the days to come.

Health Insurance & Protection Daily would like to thank everyone who attended the event and, of course, to its sponsors. Thank you also to those intermediaries that entered the Awards and to those that voted in the Provider Awards.

Health Insurance & Protection Daily would also like to give special mention to Christopher Claridge-Ware and thank him on behalf of the broking and provider communities for his continued contribution to the industry.
