Society's history examined in exciting new documentary

5th December 2011

Wednesday 7th December marks the unveiling of an exciting new documentary showcasing the history of Benenden Healthcare – ‘Ahead of its Time’.

'Ahead of its Time' is a new look at the origins of the Society, produced by independent filmmakers, Trafalgar Productions. It is a gripping documentary which reveals the tale behind Charles Garland's first historic steps towards founding what was to become Benenden Healthcare Society.

The compelling tale of how he made affordable, life-saving treatment available to co-workers with tuberculosis is as relevant now as it was then and his ground-breaking model is still in use today. Garland's legacy has continued to grow and develop into a mutual health and wellbeing organisation with a membership of over 900,000 people.

On Wednesday 7th December, you can watch an exclusive preview to ‘Ahead of its Time’ at 09:30 either on our Facebook page or at Studiotalk TV

Learn more about this gripping documentary which reveals the tale behind Charles Garland's first historic steps towards founding what was to become Benenden Healthcare Society.
