The best healthcare provider for those who are looking for international assistance is Bupa, according to a recent poll of the readers of Investment International magazine.

The magazine, an offshore investment and personal finance publication, named Bupa “Best International Healthcare Provider”, after readers voted for the healthcare company in a recent poll. The magazine claimed that Bupa stood out from other healthcare providers on the market and that it has stood out from its competitors over the course of the last year.

Bupa spokesman, International sales director Tim Slee said that he was “delighted” with the results:"Our customers have the reassurance of knowing that they can be treated in any of our 7,500 participating hospitals and clinics worldwide. Bupa's doctors and in-house medical teams - unique among private medical insurers - arrange hundreds of emergency evacuations and repatriations each year and offer customers medical advice and guidance, 24 hours a day.

"Our multi-lingual advisers speak more than 30 languages and can help with everything from minor injuries and routine healthcare appointments to emergency evacuation - offering comfort to customers wherever they are in the world."

This is not the first time that Bupa has received critical acclaim. They have also been awarded “Best International Medical Insurance Provider” at the National Health Insurance Magazine annual awards a staggering nine years running as a result of votes cast by insurance brokers throughout the UK. Commenting on their success Tim Slee said: “We work with excellent brokers on a global level and appreciate their continued support. We are delighted to have received the accolade from the brokers as best provider of international private medical insurance for the fourth consecutive year, which highlights why Bupa International is the number one choice for expats wherever they are in the world.
