Bupa and Babylon extend partnership deal

Bupa UK Insurance and Babylon have extended their partnership agreement to provide digital health services to Bupa UK health insurance customers for a further three years.

Bupa was one of the first health insurers to offer digital GP access to its customers and has partnered with Babylon since 2015. Since then, there have been over 360,000 Babylon app downloads by its UK insurance customers.

General manager for operations and healthcare management at Bupa UK Insurance James Sherwood said: ‘Having fast access to GP care is increasingly important for our customers to support their everyday health and wellbeing. We’ve seen growing use of the service over the past two years, with around 8,000 appointments a week. We’re pleased to continue working with Babylon to enhance our digital services for our customers.’
