The GP Helpline works for everyone. The current waiting time to see a local GP is estimated to be around 2 weeks. With a GP helpline in place, then employees no longer need to take time off work to see their GP, and employers’ benefit from less employee absence.
The GP Helpline provides access to a GP telephone consultation service, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and also includes access to an online webcam consultation available Monday - Friday, 8.30am to 6.30pm. (Excluding Bank Holidays).
The doctor can provide advice, diagnosis, reassurance, prescriptions and a course of action as necessary. All advice is specific to you taking into account your own personal medical history.
The service can be accessed anywhere in the world, and what’s more, this service is not only accessible for the employee, but their immediate family as well, meaning the whole family can take advantage of the service both in the UK and internationally.
