The modern day workplace is like a well-oiled machine. It relies on each of the workers acting like cogs and gears, performing together in tandem to guarantee that the machine works exactly as it should. However, when a worker gets sick and has to take days off to see a GP, the machine stops, and for a business, that can be catastrophic. Trying to use the resources of our admittedly underfunded and overworked NHS can take a while, which is why the solution can often be to have a private GP on hand to help. Luckily, Prestige Private Health can offer just that.

Minimise Disruptions to the Workplace

The purpose of a private, in-house GP is simple – you want to cut down the number of sick days off. To try and do this, let’s look at the typical situation which occurs when a person is sick and needs to take time off to solve the problem:

Scenario A

  1. Your worker gets sick.
  2. Your worker needs to see a GP about their symptoms.
  3. Your worker takes three days off while they are waiting for a GP appointment.
  4. Your worker is diagnosed with an illness and takes three more days off to recover.

 

Scenario B

  1. Your worker gets sick.
  2. Your worker needs to see a GP about their symptoms.
  3. Your worker sees in the in-house GP the same day, removing the need to take three days off waiting for an appointment.
  4. Your worker is diagnosed with an illness and takes three days off to recover.

 

As we can see from the two scenarios, having an in-house GP can make the process of having a sick worker a lot better. They don’t have to take extra time off, which can add up a lot in the long run.
