Christopher Macwilliam was excellent throughout my claim. He listened carefully and always kept me up to date. Everything was handled in a highly professional manner and I cannot speak highly enough of Chris and the company as a whole.

Mr Saunders

Mr Macwilliam has been very patient as my husband is dyslexic, some things needed explaining a few times and in other ways so Alan could understand. The interim payments were a huge help while the claim was going through.

I was pleased with the professional and efficient manner with which my claim was dealt with. It was an unusual claim / incident but Mr Macwilliam put time and effort into understanding the dental side of the issue. I am very pleased with the outcome.
