Doctor Care Anywhere has partnered with Epassi UK, a leading health and wellbeing company that offers discounted schemes designed to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of the UK workforce.
Epassi UK is the UK’s largest health and fitness network and works with over 2,000 clients and 6.5 million employees across the UK and Ireland.
With over 20 years’ experience, Epassi UK provides employees with health and wellbeing benefits such as discounted gym memberships and health assessments. As part of the partnership, Doctor Care Anywhere – star of our HealthTech 50 ranking last year – will be offering Epassi UK’s clients, and their employees discounted access to virtual GP appointments.
This means employees can access expert help and advice wherever they are in the UK, seven days a week, with no need to call for appointments and no trips to the surgery. They can book a time that suits them and obtain early diagnosis and treatment, resulting in reduced travel, quicker recovery time and fewer sick days at work.
Plus, medication can be delivered to home, work, or a local pharmacy. GP appointment wait times are higher than pre-pandemic levels and the average waiting time for an appointment is currently over a week in the UK.
Through the partnership, employees can enjoy the peace of mind of having a doctor on hand, wherever they need one and without having to wait, with appointments available within a few hours via a dedicated app or online.
Zoe Sullivan, chief partnerships officer at Doctor Care Anywhere, said: “Doctor Care Anywhere are proud to be offering our services to clients and employees of Epassi UK.
We recognise the importance of giving people the peace of mind that they have quick access to high quality care at a time that is convenient to them.”
James Shillaker, managing director at Epassi UK, said: “Here at Epassi UK, we believe that healthcare access should be on-demand and at the patient’s convenience. High-quality care can be delivered remotely, and Doctor Care Anywhere has the appropriate means to do so effectively.”
