Partners& are proud to tell the story behind the brand and what really makes us unique.
The link between physical and mental wellbeing has never been more clear. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has generated pressures on mental health systems and consequently workplaces around the world. Figures from the UK’s Office of National Statistics indicate that the number of adults likely to be experiencing some form of depression during 2020 had almost doubled from 9.7% in July 2019 to 19.2% in June 2020. For those who require targeted support NHS waiting times are currently in excess of 18 weeks for referral to talking therapies.
Partners& clients will now be able to access a much faster route to support and self-care via Doctor Care Anywhere’s proposition, helping employers support their workforce and maintain a physically and mentally healthy and productive workplace.
Leigh Dauncey, Wellbeing, Engagement & Benefits Director at Partners&, said:
“I am delighted to announce our partnership with Doctor Care Anywhere, which comes at a particularly exciting moment for Partners&, having recently launched our Wellbeing, Engagement & Benefits proposition. We believe great mental and physical health support at the touch of a button should be for everyone – this partnership allows Partners& to support clients with mind and body health services at a fixed cost per person, no matter how large or small their business.”
Dr Bayju Thakar at Doctor Care Anywhere said:
“Society is becoming more aware that mental health is as important as physical health, yet huge stigma still surrounds seeking help for your mental health and even with greater awareness this is not translating into action. The sheer volume and range of mental health services leads to disjoined and inefficient pathways. Our philosophy of joining up fragmented systems is now being realized in mental as well as physical health.
“Doctor Care Anywhere’s entry into the mental health market gives patients a seamless solution that treats the whole person. We are always happy to work with progressive and collaborative partners such as Partners& to transform health journeys and deliver a truly joined up healthcare experience to patients.”
