“I’ve found the membership fantastic and the insurance has been everything I could have asked for. It was so easy to complete and sign up to and the insurance company have been so helpful and responsive if I had any questions. Everything was done in a timely manner and was easy to cover everything I needed. It also came with a free trial for Isoconnect which is absolutely perfect and Kim Page who has it was very kind and gave her time to explain how it all works and answer all my queries. I’ll be sticking with the membership, insurance and Isoconnect. Thank you Vocal Health Education for your truly amazing platform!”
