TAUNTON-based health insurer WPA has just won its fifth award of the year.

The company, which has offices at Blackbrook Business Park, has been recognised as the Best Healthcare Provider at the national Corporate Adviser Awards.

WPA's business development manager Kathryn Vellacott received the award from host Rob Beckett at a presentation event.

The latest accolade comes after the company also won accolades in 2021 for Best Customer Service Delivery; Best Cash Plan Provider for the third year in a row; Best Health Insurance Provider for the second consecutive year; and Somerset’s Employer of the Year.

Nathan Irwin, chief executive at WPA, said: "The awards we have received this year underline our reputation and are testament to the calibre and dedication of our team in Taunton.

"We have remained focussed on customer service throughout the challenges of the pandemic and, as a result, customer numbers are increasing.

"We continue to recruit talented people to join a team committed to treating our customers as we would wish to be treated ourselves."
