    Publish Date:

    In the current climate, everything we can do to ease the burden on the NHS, and support workers adjusting to living and working remotely can help make a difference.

    Help@hand from Unum offers eligible employees fast access to four health and wellbeing support tools, through a single, easy-to-use app.

    As of 31st March, 303 clients have registered for Help@hand, and around 28,000 employees have been given access to the services – almost doubling the number of companies signing up, and increasing the number of people with access by 50% in just three weeks.


    And here are just some examples of why people used Help@hand GP video consultations in February.

    • Anxiety, stress and other mental health issues
    • Children’s health
    • Colds, flu and other minor infectious symptoms
    • Joint and muscular problems
    • Skin complaints

    If you’re one of our Group Income Protection policyholders, you can already provide your insured employees with access to live, video consultations with a UK-based remote GP, plus mental health support, physiotherapy and a second opinion service – at no added cost.
