Free digital doctor service for Cirencester Friendly members

Cirencester Friendly, the Cirencester-based mutual, has announced that it will provide a 24/7 GP service for its income protection members.

GP24, provided by Medical Solutions, is available to all Cirencester Friendly Members at no additional cost and will provide them with round-the-clock access to a GP by phone for diagnosis, advice and support. It will also provide private prescriptions and referral letters via a personalised app. Online video consultations with a GP are available between 8am and 10pm, seven days a week.

David Macgregor commercial director at Cirencester Friendly, said: "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 it and wherever they are."

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 any time, anywhere."
