Partners&, the business insurance broker and provider of employee wellbeing and benefits tools, is strengthening its wellbeing proposition through a new agreement with leading digital healthcare provider, Doctor Care Anywhere
The partnership provides a unique platform for Partners& to bring mind and body health services to its clients across the UK and underscores its focus on supporting clients to maximise employees wellbeing, engagement, and productivity.
Partners& clients in the UK will now be able to access Doctor Care Anywhere’s new digital first, integrated service which delivers a joined-up mental and physical healthcare journey via one app, providing patients with:
- Digital tools that empower self help and mental resilience: delivering a range of activities, educational information, games, anonymous chat forums and chat-based counselling.
- Unlimited 20 minute GP consultation: designed to allow a GP to address multiple concerns and symptoms to ascertain underlying health connections.
- MindCare Clinic: a series of 20 minute and 40 minute consultations focused on personalized goal-setting based on a patient’s healthcare objectives.
- Matched referrals: on going and effective treatment through access to relevant talking therapies.
The link between physical and mental wellbeing has never been more clear. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has generated pressures on mental health systems and consequently workplaces around the world. Figures from the UK’s Office of National Statistics indicate that the number of adults likely to be experiencing some form of depression during 2020 had almost doubled from 9.7% in July 2019 to 19.2% in June 2020. For those who require targeted support NHS waiting times are currently in excess of 18 weeks for referral to talking therapies.
Partners& clients will now be able to access a much faster route to support and self-care via Doctor Care Anywhere’s proposition, helping employers support their workforce and maintain a physically and mentally healthy and productive workplace.
