Practical Protection Podcast – Living with a Heart Condition

Hi everyone, it is podcast time again and I hope that you found Alan’s high risk insurance case studies useful last time around.

This week I am chatting to Vicky Churcher, Intermediary Director of AIG. I imagine that some of you will have heard some of Vicky’s story before, she has been very open about her health these last few years. In 2018 Vicky had a major heart attack, which was a huge shock given her being a regular runner, a vegetarian for most of her life and generally someone that didn’t have any of the usual risks that lead to a heart attack.

On Thursday 17 September at 8am the latest podcast episode will air you can find the podcast HERE.  It’s also on all major podcasting platforms.

Vicky is joining me to chat about her health, claiming on her insurance and how the additional services offered by Best Doctors have been phenomenal for both her and her family. If ever there was a case study for advisers to be able to use, to really express the benefits of value added services to a client, Vicky’s story is a clear choice.

In this episode we focus upon Vicky’s experiences of what having a heart attack felt like and how it can change your life. Vicky is now a counsellor to support people that are due to undergo major heart surgery, which I think we can all agree is an incredibly positive way to focus her energy.

The 3 key takeaways:

  • The types of symptoms that someone can experience when having a heart attack.
  • The importance of using value added services, like Best Doctors, to double check that every part of your medical condition has been thoroughly investigated.
  • A case study arranging life insurance for a client with atrial fibrillation, a history of pulmonary embolisms and mental health.

Next time I will be chatting with Emma Thomson from British Friendly. We will be chatting about Emma’s experience being diagnosed with breast cancer and what it was like for her to claim on her insurance policies.

Once you have listened to the episode don’t forget to claim your CPD certificate HERE.

You may find that your work systems are not keen on the CPD form (it’s a google form). Please don’t worry if that is the case. Contact me on social media or through the website and I will be able to issue the certificate directly to you.
