Supporting your clients' health with enhanced LV= Doctor Services

LV= Doctor Services

Protecting businesses and their employees

Business owners already invest in protecting other elements of the business, like property and stock, but industry research suggests only 26% of SMEs protect their most valuable assets, their staff and business owners.

At LV=, we’re committed to supporting small businesses, through quality protection and market leading value added services.

LV= Doctor Services is included as part of our business protection policies at no extra cost

We’ve now added LV= Doctor Services onto any new business protection policy. When your client takes out a business protection policy with us, it will entitle all life insured to access LV= Doctor Services. The life insured will get access to six medical services to support the issues which matter to them such as Remote GP, Remote Psychological Services and Remote Physiotherapy Services. This means, business owners can support their employees to take care of their health, whilst looking after their business.

How does it help businesses?

In the UK, its estimated that businesses are losing £77.5 billion a year due to ill health associated productivity loss (Britain’s Healthiest Workplace study, 2018). This is no surprise; as with our lives getting busier, our own health becomes less of a priority. Many of us avoid the doctor due to time and lack of convenience letting their illness and work productivity suffer.

LV= Doctor Services enables the life insured to get a quick GP appointment at a time that’s convenient to them. By simply downloading the LV= Doctor Services app to their smartphone, they can book an appointment (normally within 2hrs) anywhere, at home or at work, meaning they can make time for their health around their busy lives. This reduces stress for your clients and the life insured as they can start making steps to improve their health and will increase overall productivity for the business.

Over 11% of all sickness absence days in the UK are due to mental health conditions and with poor mental health support and long waiting times this could rise. With our Remote Psychotherapy Services, the life insured could get the support they need to help treat their mental health without the wait times and costs of private treatment, reducing the need to take time off work increasing productivity within the business.
