A medical travel insurance comparison website and a GP app have joined forces to offer British travellers 24-hour access to the NHS while travelling.
The £5.95 per month service, from Medical Travel Compared (MTC) and GP On Demand, works both abroad and in Britain and involves purchasing a travel insurance policy through MTC.
GP on Demand has more than 3.6 million users and provides 24/7 access to telephone-based GP consultations by NHS-practicing GPs. Customers can also access video consultations between 8am and 10am GMT daily, call as often or for as long as they want, and order prescriptions to the UK and EU.
Tommy Lloyd, managing director of Medical Travel Compared, said: “The new service will offer our customers excellent value for money, as well as providing a great source of comfort for those who travel with pre-existing conditions.”
