Advice and support for your employees
Working remotely can be isolating, so providing your employees with the right support is more important than ever. Our Employee Assistance Programme from Health Assured provides your people with a confidential, 24/7 helpline.
Employees can call anytime for support and advice on a range of issues, including anxiety, depression, debt, legal issues, bereavement and relationships.
Online GPs on-demand
During the coronavirus outbreak, GP surgeries are experiencing high demand and 111 wait times are likely to last several hours.
Perkbox Medical takes that pressure off the NHS by letting your employees book online GP appointments and get prescriptions delivered for non-coronavirus related issues.
If you or your employees are showing any symptoms of coronavirus, please follow the official advice issued by Public Health England. We recommend using Medical for any non-urgent medical issues which are not related to coronavirus.
