What Our Franchisees Say

Attending the open day at Head Office was extremely useful and helped reassure me that I was perusing a good opportunity. It allowed me to learn more about WPA, meet a number of staff and experience the culture and transparency of the organisation. It certainly played a crucial role in my decision making process about becoming a Healthcare Partner.Catherine Bennett – Healthcare Partner since December 2014

The Healthcare Practice is unique… I’ve never worked with a company that look after you so well. Joining them was the best decision I have made in my life, hand on heart.Bob Grace, Board Chairman

I took up my Healthcare Partnership 7 years ago. It has been one of the most enjoyable and rewarding stages of my career. I have grown my customer base and income substantially year on year and my husband and I now run 2 franchises. We have found them to be an innovative, supportive and generous franchisor.Tina Kemp, Account Director, Mentor & Healthcare Franchisee
