See a doctor whenever you want, wherever you are. Get your prescription1 delivered to your hotel when you’re away on business. And now – with our Advance corporate health scheme – you could benefit from GP-led tests and scans without having to take time out to see a consultant first2.
AXA Doctor at Hand, powered by Doctor Care Anywhere, is a private online GP service that puts better health in easy reach for everyone. It’s an evolution in on-demand, personalised care for you and your employees.
AXA Doctor at Hand is included as part of Advance, our corporate health insurance. Or you can buy it on its own as a healthcare benefit for your business.
With AXA Doctor at Hand, GP appointments by video or phone are just a couple of taps away – 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year3. There’s no waiting for the surgery to open. And there’s no hanging on the phone for a GP appointment.
Appointments are with qualified doctors; experienced healthcare professionals hand-picked by Doctor Care Anywhere. Your employees can even choose the doctor they want to see.
Your employees will have a copy of their appointment notes uploaded directly to their patient record so they’ve got a reminder of the conversation they’ve had with the doctor. Their full medical notes can be sent to their NHS GP to make sure that everyone’s in the picture.
Doctor-patient confidentiality is paramount. Your business will be given overall usage reports but no personal details.
Booking online or through the app couldn’t be easier. AXA Doctor at Hand appointments are usually available within a few hours, and your employees can join from anywhere in the world – at home or when they’re away. GP appointments are twenty minutes long and with our Advance corporate health membership there's no limit to the number of times they can use the service4.
With our Advance corporate health membership if something needs looking into, GPs can recommend some diagnostic tests or scans2. Your employees might not need to see a consultant first. A specialist will review the results remotely before the GP goes through them with the employee over the phone or by video call, saving precious time. The GP can also contact our Fast Track Appointments team directly to arrange further treatment5.
If a prescription could help, your employees won’t even have to visit a pharmacy. Prescriptions can be delivered straight to the office, their home, their hotel or a local pharmacy if it’s easier1.
