Medical Solutions partners with Cirencester Friendly

By Patrick Brusnahan

Medical Solutions has partnered with Cirencester Friendly to launch GP24, a virtual GP service for the firm’s income protection members.

GP24 is available at no additional cost for members and is available 24 hours a day. It provides access to a GP via phone for diagnosis and advice, as well as support and private prescriptions.

In addition, online video consultations with a GP are available at certain times during the day.

Furthermore, the two companies have collaborated on the marketing of the service with a personalised launch video.

Paul Nattrass, commercial director at Medical Solutions, said: “Accessing primary care has been challenging for many people over the past few months and it’s likely this will remain the case for the foreseeable future. We are therefore delighted to partner with Cirencester Friendly to provide our 24/7 GP service and give its Members the reassurance that they can access expert medical advice and support at anytime, anywhere.”

David Macgregor, commercial director at Cirencester Friendly, added: “I am delighted to announce our partnership with Medical Solutions and that we have added another great value-added benefit to our contracts. As a Friendly Society we want to demonstrate the value of income protection throughout the lifetime of the membership and not just at claim, GP24 does just that. GP24 offers Members reassurance in these uncertain times, giving them access to specialist GPs whenever they need and wherever they are.”

In July 2020, Medical Solutions launched a similar virtual GP service, with unlimited access, for General & Medical’s members.

The service is available to all eligible members at no extra cost. It provides 24/7 access to a GP by phone for diagnosis, advice, and reassurance. In addition, private prescriptions and referral letters are part of the product.

Furthermore, online video consultations with a GP will be available for General & Medical members between 8am and 10pm, seven days a week.
