HealthCarePlus is a not-for-profit society owned by the Education Unions and the PSA.

Previously known as the Education Benevolent Society (EBS) and set up in 1963, the Society has been providing valued benefits to education union members and PSA members working in education. In 2016 the decision was made to extend this valuable offer to all PSA members.
