Private GP option

When you have a health concern it’s natural to want to see a GP as soon as possible. But these days it can be hard to get a face-to-face appointment that fits in with the busy lives we lead. And if an appointment falls in the middle of the working day, everything else is affected. 

With the Private GP option, you and your employees will benefit from fast access to in-person  doctor’s appointments, including same-day, evening or weekend slots where available, reducing the impact of absences on the day to day profitability of your business. And helping to put everyone’s mind at ease.

Plus, access to our 24/7 online GP service, AXA Doctor at Hand (powered by Doctor Care Anywhere), is included as standard with all of our cover options. This gives you and your team access to online GP appointments (for up to 20 minutes) 24/7, 365 days a year. Appointments are subject to availability. Advanced Nurse Practitioners available 8am-10pm.

A private GP service that’s fit for the working day

  • See a private GP promptly when you or one of your team members becomes ill.
  • We’ll pay up to £500 a year towards the cost of private GP appointment fees for each person on your plan.
  • Benefit from a greater choice of appointments and flexibility – there’s no need for you and your team members to organise the working day around a GP appointment at your local NHS surgery.

Extending the benefit of fast GP access to everyone

Private GP

Ben is the founder of an accountancy firm based in London. He has a team of three people who all commute into the city from the surrounding counties. He regularly overhears his team talking about how they struggle to get a GP appointment at their local practices – one that fits in with their schedules and doesn’t need them to work from home for the rest of the day. 

Ben visits a private GP practice around the corner from the office and pays for his appointments each time. He chooses to do this because it’s more convenient: the practice has appointments after work for a start. Ben chose to extend this benefit to his team through the Private GP option so that everyone can see a doctor at a time and place that suits them, without having too much of an impact on their day – and his business. 

What this option will pay for

  • Visits to a private GP:  we’ll pay the fees for up to £500-worth of visits a year, per person named on your plan.
