Healthcare cover can help to provide you with peace of mind that your team’s health and wellbeing is being looked after, so you can focus on your business.

More about AXA Health


GBEA are pleased to introduce AXA Health for their business healthcare cover.

As AXA’s UK health and wellbeing specialists, AXA Health will be your health partners to keep your business healthy and happy, and help your employees bring out their best selves. Whatever healthy looks like for you and your team, we’re here to help you get there, building a wellbeing culture throughout your organisation – no matter how big or small.

Because we know that every business is unique, we think that the best way for you to get the healthcare cover that’s right for you and your team is to let you build your plan yourself. We offer a range of private healthcare cover options and benefits for you to choose from, so you can create a plan that best suits your business and your budget. You may want to provide mental health support for the pressures which come with your area of work, or maybe it’s physiotherapy support you know would be beneficial for your team.

Regardless of the healthcare benefits you choose, everyone covered will have:

  • Unlimited access to our 24/7 online GP service, AXA Doctor at Hand (powered by Doctor Care Anywhere). This gives you and your team access to an online or phone appointment with a GP for up to 20 minutes, at a time and place that suits you. Appointments are subject to availability. Doctor Care Anywhere’s fair use policy applies
  • Access to telephone health information and support from our team of nurses, counsellors, midwives and pharmacists via our Health at Hand service
  • Our experienced cancer and heart nurses, available by phone, make sure no one has to find their way on their own when diagnosed with cancer or a heart condition
  • Access to a physiotherapist over the phone or online without the need for a GP referral, with Working Body (available to you and your team aged 18 and over). They’ll assess the symptoms, talk about what they could mean, and help plan what to do next
  • Access to wellbeing support online that’s tailored to your individual goals with our Proactive Health Gateway. You can use the AXA Health Age calculator to find out your ‘Health Age’, follow in-depth guidance and make suggested changes to get healthier.
