Having access to your local GP is one of the first steps to good health. If you’re able to see your doctor sooner, you could potentially stop your illness from spreading or progressing into something more serious. For example, by treating the common cold or flu, you can prevent a secondary infection like pneumonia or bronchitis.
At GetSavvi Health we provide you with the opportunity to consult with your GP when you need it most.
With this benefit you’ll have access to unlimited visits per person per annum on our network of more than 2 500 medical practitioners.
These consultations include minor procedures in the doctor’s rooms that are covered in the tariffs for GP consults.
To see if there’s a network GP in your area, simply go to Find a Doctor, select an area, choose your doctor and book your consultation.
