HM Treasury staff do not as a matter of course have any private health care entitlements although there are some discounts offered to civil servants, including HM Treasury officials, by providers of private health insurance.

There are 26 staff employed by HM Treasury who are entitled to private health care and currently 24 have taken up the option. Staff with these health care entitlements are ex-employees of Partnerships UK (PUK) who transferred permanently into the Department on 1 August 2010. These individuals maintained their contractual PUK terms and conditions which are protected by The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations (TUPE).
