Leading healthcare provider Bupa has launched ‘My Healthcare’, a new market-leading health benefits proposition for UK frontline employees, providing world-class medical support.
The new benefits range from access to GP services to physiotherapy and mental health support. They have been designed in response to feedback from Bupa’s frontline teams on the services that they would most value.
The launch of My Healthcare benefits more than 15,000 frontline employees in Bupa care homes and dental practices, with access to key services offering peace of mind.
The new package is available from day one of employment for permanent staff. It is cost-free to employees, with Bupa paying the tax benefit on behalf of colleagues. Therefore, this does not impact their take-home pay.
Healthy and happy
Bupa people will have access to world-class primary care services, including:
- Remote GP appointments, including at evenings and weekends
- Physiotherapy support
- Mental health support
- Access to a 24/7 nurse helpline
- Further benefits to be added throughout the year.
Tom Hoosen-Webber, chief people and procurement officer at Bupa Global and UK said: ‘At Bupa, people are at the heart of our business and we want to keep them healthy and happy in their roles. We are proud to deliver the highest quality medical care to our patients, residents and customers. We want our hardworking teams to have access to this same high quality care.
‘Colleagues now have health benefits that meet their needs without the financial burden. They have access to medical support in a flexible way.
‘We are proud to be an employer of choice and want people to come and grow their careers with Bupa. So we continue to listen to our people and want them to know they are valued and cared for, while they are caring for our customers.’
The primary care support for frontline workers is the first phase of a global wellbeing programme, Bupa Viva, which includes all aspects of health, from mental and physical, to financial, social and environmental wellbeing.
Bupa Viva will see Bupa enhancing health benefits and medical cover for all employees worldwide throughout 2023.
