Working in partnership with HQP


Our partnership with HQP is aimed at providing significant benefits to hospices.

HQP, The Care Procurement Specialists are experts in procurement for the care sector, founded by Hospices for Hospices, they work on behalf of their Hospice Partners to provide the best value for money products and services that deliver exclusive benefits. All framework agreements have been negotiated through their centralised procurement team's rigorous tendering and due diligence procedures, all with quality of service as paramount.

PIB Group are proud to be one of HQP’s supply partners, under a framework that supplies hospices with savings and great products and for the insurance, allows the hospices to benefit through a profit share agreement if all the insurers accounts achieve profit - something which you would not receive by purchasing direct.

As a supply partner to HQP, we can offer members insurance, risk management and employee benefits services.

What our clients have to say

“PIB Insurance Brokers were introduced to St Helena Hospice through HQP but I have worked with them for many years before that with another hospice. They really understand the hospice sector and are able to put together insurance cover that is needed rather a generic off the shelf solution. Their on-going support is first class and the turn round response time for queries is always rapid and provides effective and practical solutions.”
