Integrated Primary Care

We’ve partnered with Doctor Care Anywhere to develop a unique experience combining virtual and face-to-face services through a single digital platform.

Introducing our integrated primary care proposition

The new partnership combines Doctor Care Anywhere’s 24/7 virtual GP service with our own national network of face-to-face GPs creating the first joined-up primary care proposition of its kind.

This new service will transform the health journeys of patients by allowing them to choose how, when and where they access the primary care services they need. 

Providing patients with choice 

The joint face-to-face and virtual model provides a more patient-centred approach, allowing people to decide what suits them best at a time that works for them. 

This aligns with the new hybrid working models being developed nationwide, and allows access to continuous care whether your employees are at work, at home or in the community.

Benefits of a virtual GP

Remote consultations have many advantages, including:
  • Easy online booking
  • A choice of times and dates
  • Access to medical records at the touch of a button
  • Convenient access to an English-speaking GP from anywhere in the world.

As we emerge from the pandemic, virtual GP services can be used to help clear the growing backlog of patients with non-urgent illnesses, as well as routine reviews of certain conditions.

However there are limits to what can be delivered through a virtual consultation. If a patient needs an examination, it's not always possible nor desirable to do this virtually.

Benefits of face-to-face consultations

Face-to-face consultations remain important, especially when direct examination and testing is required, for example cervical smear screening, flu jabs or other vaccinations.

Other clinical conditions and presentations that merit a face-to-face appointment, include:

  • Mental health illness
  • Breathlessness or chest pain
  • Abdominal pain
  • Where people have additional needs such as hearing loss, learning difficulties or frailty.

It’s critical to your employees, and therefore our integrated service, that face-to-face appointments remain available to deliver the best outcomes.
