The Life Insurance Market
Critical illness cover and even life insurance, are expected to become a higher priority for UK consumers.
That's because it was revealed some doctors may be avoiding having to talk about sensitive issues.
Research from life insurance provider Aviva says that time constraints could be one of the reasons Britons are dealing with problems such as obesity and alcohol misuse, head-on.
The findings come from the most recent Health of the Workplace study, from the insurer.
It was found another reason for doctors backing away from other topics such as smoking and personal hygiene was because they didn’t want to embarrass patients, or hurt their feelings.
A worrying two in five doctors are said to be apprehensive when it comes to telling a patient they are obese – one of the biggest causes of illness in the UK.
Given the widely publicised debate surrounding the funding of public health recently, protection such as sickness insurance would offer peace of mind.
