Cancer cover that goes beyond care.

A new approach
to cancer cover

The first membership of its kind.

Rutherford Direct is a new approach to cancer cover. It’s not insurance, it’s a membership plan. So, if you’re faced with a cancer diagnosis, your membership gives you access to advanced technology, treatment and therapies fast from the Rutherford Health network of clinics.

We are the only cancer cover provider that gives you direct access
to a leading cancer treatment centre network that includes:

  • Technology – From proton beam therapy to immunotherapy,
    learn about our advanced technology.
  • Therapy – We treat the whole person, body and mind.
  • Care – From our modern, comfortable facilities to how we work
    with you to schedule treatment.

Why do we need a new
form of cancer cover?
  • 1 in 2 people will be faced with a cancer diagnosis.
  • How quickly you access care can make a huge difference after a diagnosis.

Rutherford Direct’s membership plan challenges the way cover’s always been done.
Our clear objective is to give members fast and direct access to the best technology, therapies and treatments should they face a cancer diagnosis.
No ifs, buts, loopholes or exclusions.

Jane’s Story

“As a cancer survivor I know first-hand that feeling on the day you’re diagnosed. It’s like the earth disappears from underneath you. If any of my colleagues ever face that day, I want them to know we’re right there with them. That’s why we chose Rutherford Direct.”
