Sme Employees Set To Benefit From A Complete Health And Well-being Solution

DocHQ offers flexible access to medical practitioner's, medical information, reminders and health records via a range of digital channels
EASTLEIGH, U.K. - Jan. 29, 2019 - PRLog -- With workplace presenteeism figures at a record high1, SMEs will welcome the launch of a new prevention, treatment and aftercare health solution that is being trialed as an employee benefit across the South of England – DocHQ.

Over 11% of patients are unable to get an NHS GP appointment and more than 20% are having to wait at least seven days.  As well as impacting employee absenteeism, this is boosting presenteeism and fueling increases in stress, anxiety and depression within the workplace. However, with DocHQ employees can now quickly and easily book an appointment with the choice to opt for an NHS or private medical practitioner, depending on who is available at the most convenient time to them.

DocHQ also provide access to secure personal medical records that can be shared with the patient's GP, a range of medical services, pharmaceuticals and much more, all via multiple choices of communication – phone, video, online chat or face-to-face.

Dr Simon Chaplin-Rogers, Chief Medical Officer for DocHQ is a highly respected doctor managing multiple NHS and private practices across the South of England with over 30 years' experience. He says of the launch, "Businesses whose senior management understand the importance of employee well-being and implement a proactive staff healthcare programme, are much more likely to report a reduction in absenteeism and presenteeism.  The launch of DocHQ aims to help businesses achieve this by offering employees access to the information and services they need, when they need them.

"DocHQ is so much more than a Clinical booking tool.  Users get appointment reminders, including check-ups and screenings, test results and access to prescriptions.  Users will even receive personalised medical advice based on their test results, medical condition and health goals.

"Crucially, unlike any of the other current digital employee benefit healthcare offerings on the market, DocHQ forms a partnership between the employee, the healthcare system and healthcare providers across the NHS and private marketplace.

"What's more, we know that people want to be more knowledgeable and in control of their own health and more than 75% of patients expect to be able to manage this digitally.  By delivering a modern, convenient platform that offers end-to-end expert medical services for a digital generation, DocHQ puts employers in control of delivering a real added-value health and well-being staff benefit."

DocHQ is initially being launched in the South of England, to be rolled out across the UK over the following 18 months.  Supported by Hampshire Private GPs, DocHQ is hosted within the NHS recommended N3 network and is compliant with GPSoC requirements.
