Ill Health - Hi Bryon, I suffered a severe Heart failure on 5th March this year and was hospitalised for almost 3 months. I was only released then after a permanant oxygen supply was installed at my home. This means I am house bound and reliant on family and friends for most things. I thought that I had told Phil about this. However the newsletter says I should have told you. Sorry. You can tell Narpo members, somebody may remember me.
NOTE to all members - Due to the new law on Data Protection, we would like to remind you that we are no longer allowed to publish details of illnesses, birthdays, anniversaries on this website or Facebook unless we aquire written consent. It's a one off and an email to Phil or Bryon will suffice. Thank you.
Important - Regarding the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Compliance, concerns have been raised in respect of GDPR implications in publishing photographs, and details of ill health of members/partners and significant birthdays.
The advice we have received is that there is no problem with respect to photographs - implicit consent to them being used is implied when they are taken. However, it's a different matter with the other two - the person's consent should be obtained before publishing details of birthdays and ill health. Please keep this in mind when publishing the above information, for example on Facebook or anywhere else, publicly. As a result of GDPR, we will no longer be publishing any such details on this website or Newsletter, unless of course, we have prior consent!

NARPO Travel Insurance Members of the Travel Scheme have recently seen a large increase in their annual renewal, the letter below from AXA tries to answer the question of the large hike in renewal.
Prior to the renewal negotiations for the coming year, AXA PPP Healthcare conducted an exercise to look at the profitability of the scheme from their perspective. They discovered that last year the loss ratio of the scheme was 130%. This means that for every £1 they received in terms of premium they paid out £1.30 in terms of claims. Numerous claims have been over £100,000. Obviously, this is not a sustainable situation, and AXA PPP initially proposed an increase of 35% for the coming year. We managed to limit the increase to 26%, but we realise that this still represents a sizeable increase.
Social Matters - Again thanks to those of you who support our various functions -
Website appeal - Our Website continues to flourish, is well visited and complemented by our Facebook page 'Swansea Narpo'. We are confident though there must be many photographs and interesting/amusing anecdotes from 'your time in the job'. So, please do feel free to contribute and get in touch - you can of course remain anonymous if you so wish! We also welcome any suggestions you may have for improving 'your' website.
Difficulty opening our Newsletters - We are aware that some of you may still be experiencing problems when opening Newsletters. The Newsletter is created using Microsoft Word but not everyone has this program installed, so to get around this issue, the document is sent out as a PDF file which can then be opened and read using the FREE program Adobe Acrobat Reader. Be very careful though when about to install because the 'optional offer' boxes are already ticked. To disable, just untick the 2 boxes before installing. We hope this clarifies things but of course should you have further questions then please feel free to contact us.
