Newcross Healthcare: myHealthPlan


Caring for carers

myHealthPlan is just one of the many employee benefits available at Newcross Healthcare.

We know how integral it is that our healthcare community feel fit and well in themselves, and easy access to support and appointments when required can really help with this. It’s far easier to care for others when we feel cared for ourselves, and this is why myHealthPlan is such an important employee benefit as it really provides a boost to the health and wellbeing of all who work at Newcross Healthcare.

What is myHealthPlan?

We truly care about our dedicated healthcare community's health and wellbeing and want to do all we can to help our employees to take good care of themselves. myHealthPlan ensures our nurses and carers have easy access to the support and appointments they need when they need them, as myHealthPlan includes virtual appointments with NHS registered GPs and mental health support to assist with this.

How does myHealthPlan work?

Virtual GP appointments

Thanks to our investment in the myHealthPlan, all staff will have access to the Virtual GP app. This handy app gives you access to video appointments with an NHS registered GP at a time to suit you, so you don't need to worry about dealing with inconvenient appointment times.

Appointments will include all the same features as an in-person GP appointment, but with additional benefits such as unlimited access to the service, medication delivered directly to your door, and advice in the comfort of your own home, providing peace of mind in your otherwise hectic schedule.

Mental health support with the Employee Assistance Programme

The myHealthPlan package enables all staff to access specialist mental health support. This includes unlimited 24/7 telephone counselling and support, face-to-face counselling sessions, plus online counselling, so you can access this vital support when and where it suits you.

In addition, all staff benefit from Woebot, the artificial intelligence counsellor available through myHealthPlan, which is an innovative new way for you to get ‘in the moment’ emotional support. With Woebot, you can track your mood and identify behaviour patterns to gain an insight into any issues that may be causing you emotional distress, helping you to understand what additional support you might need.
