Imagine a GP service that’s built around your client's business

AXA Doctor at Hand

Imagine after a long day making big decisions for your business, you get home late and can still have that GP appointment you need. Imagine there’s a bug going around at work but your team have an important deadline to meet and can’t leave the office. Imagine you need a prescription ahead of your business trip to New York in 48 hours.

At AXA Health we’ve imagined it all. That's why we're giving your SME clients unlimited access to AXA Doctor at Hand, our online, private GP service, powered by Doctor Care Anywhere.*

How to claim unlimited access

All you need to do is download the AXA Doctor at Hand flyer and distribute it to your clients, so they have all the information they need about our service and how to use it whenever they need a GP.

How it works

Health info
Convenient video or phone appointments

Just book an appointment online or through the app and your clients could be talking to a doctor within hours1. They'll have 20 minutes to chat by video or phone from wherever’s convenient for them. Plus Doctor Care Anywhere doctors are highly experienced and registered with the General Medical Council. 

Calls answered
24/7 GP access

Your clients can talk to a GP online 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year (subject to availability). Everyone can now fit appointments around their work. And when their employees can sort out their medical worries quickly, they’ll be healthier, happier and more productive.

GP to specialist
Everything from diagnosis to referrals

Doctor Care Anywhere doctors are be able to diagnose any problems your clients may have2 and recommend treatment. They can also arrange referrals to specialists, and may also be able to refer you for diagnostic tests for some conditions3. If your GP needs to prescribe something for your client, they’ll arrange for this to be delivered to their home or to a chosen pharmacy, for no more than the cost of a standard NHS prescription4.    

Cross
Experienced GPs

The Doctor Care Anywhere doctors you speak to will be highly experienced and registered with the General Medical Council.

Medical records at a touch
Everything your team needs

Everything your client needs is in one place, from booking an appointment and seeing a GP when it suits them, to having a specialist referral sent straight to our Fast Track Appointments team (your clients will need to include an out-patient option in their plan for the consultation to be covered). And Doctor Care Anywhere can share information with their regular GP, so they’re updated after each appointment.

Home or abroad

  • Consultations are completely confidential and bound by the levels of patient confidentiality you’d expect with medical appointments
  • The website and app use the latest security technologies to keep your clients’ information secure
  • Regular testing of the advanced encryption systems ensures there are no weaknesses in the platform and no unauthorised parties can access confidential data
  • DCA work with the authorities who oversee information governance in the NHS to ensure the platform meets NHS standards
  • Voice and video data is fully encrypted
  • Consultations are recorded and stored securely in an encrypted database - copies of video or audio consultations can easily be requested (but they are not provided through the app automatically)
