From toe-sucking to penis anomaly

This was the arresting opening of an interesting article by Martin O’Hanlon in the latest issue of GE Frankona Re’s A Matter of Life and Health (www.geercgroup.com /glh/uk_ie/services_publications.shtml).

Martin was reviewing this year’s Reith lectures on ‘The Emerging Brain’ and relating these to the ‘wrestling with the subjectivity of the human psyche’ which is the lot of every income protection claims manager. Claims management was very much the theme of this particular issue, which also included articles on:

  • Claims forms – a new way ahead
  • Non-disclosure – are the claims team given a fighting chance?
  • Workcare – exploring the most cost effective way of rehabilitating people back to work
  • The Reith lectures can be found at www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/reith2003/.
