Punter Southall Health & Protection Launches Post Hospital Service

Following the launch of its Med24 GP app in October 2015, Punter Southall Health & Protection, one of the largest health and protection advisers in the UK, has continued its innovative approach to healthcare and protection benefits with the launch of a unique Post Hospital Discharge product.

Available to all employers wishing to extend their health and wellness benefits at a minimal cost per member, it bridges the gap between discharge from hospital and full recovery.

The Post Hospital Service has been designed to look after employees when they come out of hospital after a stay of 48 hours or longer. The stay can be for any reason (except pregnancy), whether planned or emergency, and includes NHS or private care and so is relevant to the whole work force, not just those in a corporate health scheme.

To create the service Punter Southall Health & Protection has teamed up with Red Arc Personal Nurse Advisers and Collinson Group to offer seamless, medical, emotional and practical support for employees when they come out of hospital.

As well as unlimited nurse adviser support, the service provides help at home by high quality, Care Quality Commission (CQC) accredited, domiciliary care providers. This practical help is tailored to each person’s needs and can include a variety of services such as personal care, domestic duties, collecting prescriptions and arranging transport to appointments.

Commenting on the new service Jan Lawson, Executive Director of Punter Southall Health & Protection said, “Being medically well enough to leave hospital is not the same as being better. Extra support after returning home is often necessary, but rarely provided. Everyone is different and this product combines practical help, emotional support and a personalised “Get well, Stay Well plan” for an unlimited period.”

Adds Lawrence Watts, Business Development Director, Insurance & Assistance, Collinson Group, ‘We are delighted to be working with Punter Southall Health & Protection as it continues to broaden the offer of innovative Health and Protection products and services to its employers and their members.  We look forward to working alongside Punter Southall Health and Protection by providing first class assistance in the form of practical help through our accredited domiciliary care network at a time when it is needed most.’

By helping to support full recovery, the service will benefit employees and their families as well as the sponsoring employer, who will be seen as a caring employer, while assisting members to return to work more quickly and having less chance of relapse or future illness.
