It’s that time of year where we reflect on what has been, and contemplate what next year has in store for us. It’s extra poignant for me, as its a year (almost to the day) since I was handed the baton of leading this fantastic independent insurance specialist into its next chapter.

It feels like so much has changed, but in lots of ways nothing has changed. The same dedicated team of real experts, the same passion for genuine care and personal service, the same business. But we have introduced new insurer relationships giving us wider access to markets, new products and capabilities to bring to you, and some new colleagues adding some extra resource and some new ideas and thinking.

I’m immensely proud of what we do, and how we help you, our clients, who we dedicate ourselves to everyday. We can’t thank you enough for trusting us to support your business, we take that trust very seriously and never for granted. Whatever life throws at your business in 2019, you have the whole OMIS team right behind you supporting you every way we can.

But for now, me and the whole team wish you a very merry Christmas, and a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.

Christmas Bonus

We now have access to the most exciting new private medical insurance product on the market – Equipsme. For years traditional PMI policies have not evolved, and are too expensive for most businesses with less than 250 employees. Equipsme is challenging those old fashioned, costly products and by clever design and using cutting-edge new services – this is THE must have benefit to give your employees this Christmas (or in the new year). Policies cost as low as £7 per employee per month, and goes up to the Rolls Royce cover at £37 per employee per month – regardless of age, all employees pay the same. Click HERE for an overview and our very quick video which explains everything you need to know.


New Website

It’s a been the best part of a year in the making, but I’m delighted to say that you are reading this article in our new OMIS website in all it’s glory. We’ve tried to encapsulate the essence of what we do and make it relevant to the people we do it for. Come and have a look around – we hope you like it – feedback welcome.


Christmas Opening

We are open!! But don’t worry, I’m not the Christmas scrooge and making everyone work. We just all now have super modern technology meaning whilst the office is closed, we are still very much open and available wherever we are! Every working day over the festive break will have at least 2 of us will be manning the phones and checking email, so please treat it like business as usual.

If you have an out of hours emergency, then please feel free to call me personally on 0754 551 4010.


All we want for Christmas ….

For those of you inclined to a spot of social media, 2019 will see OMIS take to the social channels. Nothing invasive, and nothing inappropriate, just hopefully well timed, informative and relevant “snippets” to provoke some thought, and hopefully some dialogue. Please make our Christmas, and follow us on both Twitter and on LinkedIn – it’ll be lonely without you……!!
