We all know looking after our day-to-day health and wellbeing should be a top priority, but life often gets in the way.
It is important however, particularly given the current uncertain times, that you have a good healthcare protection plan in place.
There are now several healthcare protection plans available that can help you and your family and give you peace of mind that you are looking after yourself and your loved ones. These plans offer the following features, usually at no additional cost to you:
This can help ease the worry of any undiagnosed underlying health conditions, not only with regard to Covid-19 but for anyone whose family have experienced health issues and they would appreciate the general peace of mind a regular check would bring.
This is by way of an app on your phone where you can speak with a doctor at any time of day or night, wherever you may be in the world. This can be for an initial consultation or if you are unhappy with a diagnosis you have been given and would like a second opinion.
With NHS waiting lists currently at over three months to be able to see a counsellor, this is invaluable if you are experiencing anything which is affecting your mental health and which you feel you would like to talk through with someone.
Again, this allows you to by-pass waiting lists and get help as soon as you need it.
This service goes hand-in-hand with Remote GP as during your GP consultation the doctor may offer you a private prescription as a recommended course of treatment. You can then choose if you would like it posted, emailed, or sent to a pharmacy near you.
Staying healthy is on everyone’s agenda this year and the diet and nutrition advice available can help greatly.

The good news is, many of the health and lifestyle conditions we deal with can be managed, or even avoided completely, with some small changes and careful management. And because many of the most common health conditions are interconnected, addressing one is often likely to have a positive impact on others – and on your life as a whole.
It has never been more important to protect your business and family.
