videoDoc: Healthcare Benefits for Employees
We get that having to leave the office to see a doctor is a nuisance, especially if you’re not feeling your best. It’s inconvenient, time-consuming and costly – for the employee and the employer. We spend our lives communicating with others on our mobile devices and through video, and expect instant access to online services. So, it makes sense to respond to this demand into how we approach healthcare. With videoDoc, GMC registered doctors and other accredited therapists are available online 7 days a week, 7am to 10pm, and are able to talk to an employee when it’s convenient for them.
Why invest in online healthcare as part of your wellbeing strategy?
Absenteeism and presenteeism is costing the UK economy billions on pounds every year and it’s no wonder when you consider these figures from the ONS:
- • 34 million working days lost to minor illness such as colds and coughs
- • 28.3 million sick days taken due to musculoskeletal problems
- • 14.3 million days lost as a result of stress, anxiety and depression
All of these conditions can be treated by a doctor, psychotherapist or physiotherapist. But when many patients have to wait two weeks to see their family GP, it’s clear to see how an online healthcare alternative can help employees reduce absence and improve productivity.
