- AXA Doctor at Hand user

With AXA Doctor at Hand you can speak to a GP 24/7, 365 days a year1, whether you’re at work, home or abroad.

20-minute appointments allow plenty of time to discuss your health concerns.

The GPs can prescribe the medication you need. Depending on where you are, they can advise you on the best way to access prescriptions locally or you have medication delivered to you directly2.

All GPs are fully qualified. Choose if you’d prefer to speak to a male or female GP.

Can I speak to a doctor when I am abroad?

You can speak to one of our doctors wherever you are in the world. Prescription fulfillment support is dependent on local laws but we will help as much as we can. In the UK and Europe prescriptions can be fulfilled in any pharmacy. Outside of Europe our doctors will give patients advice on the best medication to pick up locally. In countries where local laws prohibit the medication you need without a local doctor's prescriptions there is a delivery from the UK option to all our patients. Please note, these do incur often quite significant delivery charges and are subject to custom restrictions and delays.

Can I use my prescription internationally?

Patients who access our service through a pay-as-you-go subscription, an employee healthcare scheme or through an insurance provider can use the Doctor Care Anywhere platform internationally. 

For those patients, if you're in a country that's a member of the European Economic Area (EEA), we can send your prescription through to a local pharmacy. Our admin team will let you know when your medication is ready, so you can collect it. 

If you're in a country outside the EEA, we will provide advice on the best course of action. You will be able to collect your medication 'over-the-counter' in many countries, but we recommend that you seek local advice when looking for a trusted pharmacy. 

Other countries are subject to strict regulatory rules and you may need a prescription from a local doctor before you can collect your medication. These countries include the Channel Islands, USA, Canada, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong. Our doctors can recommend appropriate medication during your consultation, but we cannot guarantee that you'll be able to source the medication without a local prescription.

How many appointments am I entitled to?

You subscription entitles you to unlimited consultations with Doctor Care Anywhere for one year. This is subject to our fair usage policy set out in our terms and conditions.
