Specialist doctors group together to form a private health care service
A group of top doctors and health practitioners have launched a service called One Hundred Years. It is believed to be the UK’s first fully coordinated and comprehensive professional health management service, giving priority access to the world’s leading clinics, surgeons and other experts. One Hundred Years’ in-house medical team is led by Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jack Kreindler, who is joined on the Global Faculty and National Medical Advisory Board by UK Medical Director Dr. Sundeep Dhillon, MBE. Other members of the Faculty include: Professor
Hugh Montgomery, who discovered the first human gene for fitness and activity; Professor Greg Whyte, a leading specialist in exercise physiology, sports performance and rehabilitation; Dr. Michael Loosemore, who selected doctors on LOCOG’s behalf for the London Olympics; and Dr. Richard Budgett, Chief Medical Officer of the International Olympic Committee. One Hundred Years annual memberships range from ¬£5,000 to ¬£50,000. Virgil Bretz, co-founder of One Hundred Years and a veteran of international private health provision, notes: “Given the importance of health in our lives, it is odd that many of us have chosen to spend far more on buying a faster car, for example, than on optimising how well we feel every day, or how we would be looked after if we fell ill. In part this results from the fact that until now there has been no simple way for people to ‘upgrade’ how their health is managed. One Hundred Years is the first company to professionally manage health and healthcare spending.‚Äù
