We live in a demanding world.

In the last few years alone, technology has driven huge changes to the way we live our lives, and our expectation of the products and services that we use. However when it comes to accessing our own GP to discuss health concerns it’s not so simple as there is a shortage of GPs to fulfil the appointment demands.*

Some patients are waiting up to three weeks to see a doctor. And the GPs themselves are struggling with the increased demand and pressures, leaving surgeries at breaking point.*

Although the NHS are addressing this, there’s no quick fix in sight. The result is thousands of frustrated patients, struggling with health or worries for longer than they should.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

GP access through HealthWise

At The Exeter, we do more than look after our members when their health lets them down, we help them stay in good health in the first place. That’s why we’ve just launched HealthWise, a revolutionary new member benefits platform, accessible via app for smartphone and tablet.

HealthWise provides all members access to our GP on demand service. GP on demand takes the healthcare wait away by allowing members to book phone or video consultations via the app. Members, and their immediate family, can book up to 4 consultations a year, each providing up to 20 minutes with an experienced, UK-based GP at a time that suits them.

The additional services that HealthWise offers depends on the type of cover members have – we have used our experience to deliver benefits that are bespoke to our range of protection and health insurance products.

  • Second medical opinion service
  • Physiotherapy
  • Mental health support
  • Lifestyle coaching
  • Nutritional support
