AXA Doctor at Hand online GP appointments

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 being able to book an appointment during the working day that suits your schedule, not your surgery’s. Imagine you need a prescription ahead of your business trip abroad in 48 hours.

No waiting room, the doctor will see you now

At AXA Health we’ve imagined it all. It’s why we developed our AXA Doctor at Hand service, powered by Doctor Care Anywhere.

  • With AXA Doctor at Hand, appointments are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year
  • Appointments are usually available on the same day, often within a few hours
  • GPs are available 24/7 and Advanced Nurse Practitioners are available from 8am-10pm.
  • Say goodbye to rushed appointments – each one is up to 20 minutes long, giving your employees plenty of time to talk about their health concerns.
  • Just book online or use the app.
  • GPs and Advanced Nurse Practitioners can refer to a specialist if that’s what’s needed (subject to the cover options you include with your plan).
  • If you need a prescription, you can choose to have it delivered to a local chemist or straight to your door (see cost details below).

We know how important it is for you and your people to be able to manage your health, so AXA Doctor at Hand is included regardless of the cover options that you choose. If you want the same freedom and flexibility with your face-to-face GP appointments, we’ve thought of that too – just select our Private GP option.

From the GP to the Specialist

Your employees will love the freedom and convenience of this service. It’s been built around helping them and any members of their family they include on their healthcare plan to stay fit and well, in and outside of work. 

Medical records at a touch

Everything your team needs

Everything you and your team need is in one place, from booking your appointment and seeing a healthcare professional when it suits you, to having a specialist referral sent straight to our appointments booking team. A copy of your appointment notes is uploaded directly to your patient record and, with your permission, Doctor Care Anywhere can share information with your regular GP, so they're updated after each appointment.

Convenient prescription service

If you need a prescription, you can have this delivered to your door or the nearest pharmacy, whichever is the most convenient. Prescriptions are available in most circumstances and in the UK only. The costs for prescriptions and deliveries is not covered by the plan and may cost more than on the NHS.

*Important information about referrals:

Specialist consultations: All referrals and treatment recommended are on a private basis. The GPs and Advanced Nurse Practitioners are unable to refer to the NHS. So you would need to include an Outpatient option or the Diagnostics Only option on your plan for the referral to be covered. Any outpatient limits or excess would apply.

Face to face appointments with a private GP
