In association with RedArc, Finance North are delighted to offer a claims assistance service to our existing clients, as well as assistance to non-clients too. We believe that nobody should be turned away in their hour of need, and if we can provide help and support to somebody at a difficult point in their life, then we will absolutely look to help.
Mark says ‘Unfortunately, I’ve had first hand knowledge of the claims process, dealing with our own claims. That puts me in a strong position though when assisting others, in that I can empathise with their situation but have the knowledge and experience to guide them smoothly through that process, and at such a difficult time’.
As well as practical help and advice with form filling, call-making, and liaising where possible between client (or clients representative) and provider, RedArc assist in a number of ways. Their Personal Nurse Advisers are highly experienced registered nurses, each having their own areas of expertise, as well as broad general nursing experience.
