Medical Solutions continues expansion

Remote GP service provider Medical Solutions has continued its expansion after announcing a new partnership with income protection provider PG Mutual.

Under the deal, it will provide PG Mutual members and their dependents with its 24/7 virtual GP service, which includes unlimited access to phone GP consultations, private prescriptions and referral letters and video consultations between 8am and 10pm, seven days a week. 

In addition, members and their dependents will have access to Medi-SMART, Medical Solutions’ clinical pharmacist support line, which provides access to experienced clinical pharmacists.

Medical Solutions commercial director Paul Nattrass said: ‘We believe our 24/7 GP service and Medi-SMART enhance insurance policies and provide a tangible benefit for policyholders, so we are very pleased to be working with PG Mutual to make both services available for its members and their dependents. Accessing healthcare can be challenging for those working from home or limiting their movement due to the situation with Covid-19. GP24 and Medi-SMART help provide the support and reassurance many people need during these testing times and beyond.” 

The company has expanded rapidly in recent months as the Covid-19 pandemic pushes primary care consultations online. In the last three months, it has also announced partnerships with insurers Freedom Health InsuranceNational Friendly and WPA.
