I have just heard Irish Life Group has bought GloHealth, what does this mean?

Irish Life has also purchased Aviva Health and now all Aviva Health customers will be part of a new brand called Irish Life Health. For GloHealth and our customers it's business as usual and we will continue to trade as GloHealth. For now, GloHealth and Irish Life Health will operate as two seperate organisations.
