Timestamp Speaker Script
0:00 Voiceover Mark and Sue have never taken good health for granted. To be sure of private healthcare they became members of Bupa, and this priority was bought home to them recently when Sue fell ill. She was treated in a Bupa hospital, where her problem was diagnosed with a body scanner. You see Bupa have priorities too, no-one takes a profit. Anything left over from caring for their members today is reinvested for their future, like hospitals, health screening centres and the latest medical technology. Most people choosing private healthcare join Bupa. Bupa Britain feels better for it.
