Medical Solutions has partnered with General & Medical to provide the health insurer’s members with access to its virtual GP service.

The service will give members 24/7 access to a GP by phone for diagnosis, advice and reassurance as well as private prescriptions and referral letters.

‘Although we seem to be coming through this initial phase of the Covid-19 crisis, accessing primary care remains challenging for some people and many are still not getting medical advice when they need it,’ said Paul Nattrass, commercial director at Medical Solutions, a provider of remote GP services.

Simon Chapman, operations manager at General & Medical, added: ‘Remote consultations have become increasingly important over the past few months as we have all dealt with the ramifications of Covid-19, so we believe this 24/7 service will be particularly valuable for our members and a great addition to the other benefits that we provide.’

This is the sixth in a string of partnerships the private GP services provider has entered this year, with previous partners including Medicash, PG Mutual, Freedom Health Insurance, National Friendly and WPA
