Vitality GP first to offer digital GP service with face-to-face, video-call and 24-hour phone
As the NHS struggles to cope with demand, more and more digital savvy consumers are realising the potential of telemedicine. One organisation is now offering a comprehensive package that offers an improved GP experience, entirely through your smartphone.
VitalityHealth has launched a new Vitality GP service which means they are now the only organisation offering and funding three choices of GP access for every member – face-to-face, video-call, and 24-hour phone advice.
The service is delivered through a Vitality GP app, which is an evolution from a telemedicine solution to a full ‘clinic in your pocket’ experience. Saving members time and providing access to more choice of experts.
Unlike the traditional GPO experience, members can have an appointment at any time and will be able to self-refer for Priority Physio services, directly access mental health support and source a range of trusted information and advice.
The app is delivered by Square Health, a health-tech and healthcare provider and one of the UK’s largest telemedicine providers.
Vitality GP is available to VitalityHealth members as a core part of their benefit and is accessible through Android and iOS devices.
