We are excited to announce a transformative partnership with eMed, a leader in digital health solutions. Together, we are leveraging eMed’s revolutionary Digital access to Primary care services as part of our Health Essentials package, designed to streamline healthcare access for employees, enabling them to receive the right care at the right time.

Addressing Critical Bottlenecks in Primary Healthcare

GP appointments have become a significant bottleneck within the NHS, with many patients experiencing delays of two to four weeks for consultations​ (NHS)​​ (htn)​. This delay has led to increased absenteeism and decreased productivity in the workplace.

Health Essentials tackles this problem head-on by ensuring employees can connect with the appropriate healthcare professional based on their symptoms. Whether they need a Physiotherapist, prescribing Pharmacist, Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Mental Health Practitioner or GP appointments, the right specialist can be booked within an hour. This not only speeds up access to care but also ensures that employees receive the most relevant and effective treatment promptly.

A Major Leap Forward for Workforce Health through Employee Health Benefits

The partnership between Lime Health and eMed marks a significant advancement in making healthcare more accessible and efficient for the workforce. By providing rapid access to appropriate clinical care, we are helping employees recover faster and reducing the growing issue of workplace absence on a global scale.
