Imagine your employees not having to call to book a GP appointment, or travel to a surgery. Now your people can access a GP service wherever and whenever they want to.
With our Doctor@Hand service, delivered by Doctor Care Anywhere, everything they need is in one place, from booking appointments and seeing a GP when it suits; to having a specialist referral sent straight to our Fast Track Appointments team. All at a time and place that suits either their work or home commitments.
Doctor@Hand is included as part of Advance, our corporate health insurance, or as a standalone purchase.
Doctor@Hand is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week1, 365 days a year, so they’ll always be able to fit appointments in for your employees, even outside regular GP hours. Appointments are 20 minutes long, giving plenty of time to talk about health concerns.
Rest assured, whichever doctor they speak to will be highly experienced and registered with the General Medical Council. They’ll be able to diagnose their condition and recommend treatment. If they need to be referred to a specialist the GP will email their referral letter directly to our team, who will do the rest.
If your employee needs a reminder of their conversation with the doctor, a copy of their notes is uploaded directly to their patient record. Full medical notes can even be provided to their NHS GP to make sure that everyone is kept fully in the picture.
Whether they’re on holiday or abroad for work, your employees can get the advice, reassurance and the medicine they need to feel better.2
Symptoms, conditions and lifestyle factors can be monitored and tracked with Doctor@Hand. Your employees can also set up medication reminders and share their findings with their Doctor@Hand GP should they wish to.
Doctor-patient confidentiality is as protected as any face-to-face consultation is. Your business will be given overall usage reports but no personal details.
The security and confidentiality of your employees’ Doctor@Hand consultations are an absolute priority for AXA PPP healthcare and Doctor Care Anywhere (DCA). Here’s how we are keeping your employees’ private information safe:
