Liverpool’s economic development company, Liverpool Vision, has introduced a healthcare cash plan for the first time.
Through the cash plan, which is provided by Medicash, Liverpool Vision’s 50 employees will have access to a range of benefits, including: on-site screening, discounted gym memberships, and the Best Doctors service that allows staff to access expert second medical opinions by phone.
Alison Appleton, HR manager at Liverpool Vision, said: “We wanted to find a way to encourage staff to look after their health so we looked at several potential partners.
“Medicash is a well-established local provider and worked with us to create a package that we felt would help staff to think about their health and wellbeing with a ‘prevention is better than cure’ approach. The feedback from staff has been very positive.”
