Our purpose

Good health is essential to enjoying everything life offers. VIGO Health gives direct access to the everyday services that help ensure your health and wellbeing.

Our mission

We take the hassle out of everyday health. Whether you need answers to general questions or treatment for a specific issue, VIGO Health is a one-stop solution.

Who we are

Drawing on long experience in the sector, our senior leadership team - CEO Ruth Bailey, CFO Stephen Loughman, Head of Operations Jackie Deay and Head of Product Orla O’Keeffe - have created a one-stop digital platform that covers over 30 everyday healthcare services.

Who’s behind us

VIGO Health is backed by the Irish Life Group, one of Ireland’s most respected financial services brands. Irish Life Health underwrites the cash plan which means they collect premiums and pay members’ claims. Abi Global Health, Health Hero and Meaghers Pharmacy offer our message-a- doctor, video doctor and prescription delivery services.
