    Hi Ian like you seasoned industry professional since 1982 and frankly only one insurer who really attracts attention of clients is Aviva with their global treatment write it to age 85 and in trust term cover to age91. shame about their underwriting just an absolute farce called critical mass
    All the other critical illness your comparison site and ci expert very very good but at the end of the day my company is better than yours .
    what is really needed is a hybrid life ci and income protection and some private medical care.

    the regulator licensing claims management firms is an easy way out for them with no seeming control on how these hyenas work
    Oh sorry that is consumer duty !!
