HealthHero has partnered with Circle Health Group, the UK’s largest private hospital group, to provide an industry-leading virtual GP service to patients across the Group’s network of 50+ hospitals, to support the enhancement of its primary care offering.

Circle Health Group offers the UK's largest national network of private hospitals, in addition to innovative neurological and musculoskeletal rehabilitation services and pathway management services, to support two million patient visits every year.

The partnership will see the private hospital group offer patients across the UK fast and affordable access to specialist GP advice when they need it most. Additionally, the virtual service will give patients the flexibility to access a private prescription service, health advice and onward open referral into any of Circle’s hospitals with ease.

Circle’s new virtual GP service, powered by HealthHero, is part of a wider strategy to provide patients with the peace of mind they desperately need.

Adam Busby, Group Clinical Director at Circle Health Group, said:

“Partnering with HealthHero gives us the opportunity to transform what patients can expect from our primary care offering. From 24/7 booking access to a seamless onward referral process with over 5,000 of Circle’s specialist consultants. This is an exciting opportunity to make good on our commitment to delivering outstanding care to patients.”

Aseem Sadana, CEO UK&I of HealthHero, said of the partnership:

We’re excited to launch our partnership with Circle Health Group by introducing self-pay virtual GP appointments. Providing patients with 24/7 remote access to the health experts they need, sits at the heart our mission: simplifying healthcare and improving lives.

“With easy access appointments with experienced GPs, and prescriptions or onward referral to experts within Circle Health Group's network of nationwide hospitals as appropriate, together we will provide patients with a seamless healthcare journey and peace of mind.”
