Schools are currently facing a crisis of teacher absenteeism, stress and retention. And when teachers suffer from ill health, their pupils' performance is also affected. That's why we offer fast, direct access to experienced GPs in our Health Plans for Education Staff. With our GP appointments, teachers can benefit from the following:

  • 6 x 15-minute online GP appointments annually - Teachers will have peace of mind knowing that they have 6 allocated GP appointments each year
  • Book an appointment online - Teachers can see the clinic's live availability so they can book an appointment a time and date that suits them
  • Same day appointments - If teachers need urgent care, they can see a GP the same day they book an appointment - sometimes even within the same hour!
  • Online appointments - No need to travel or take extra days off work. Online appointments mean teachers can see a GP from the comfort of their home or even at work
  • Direct access to a GP - No phone queues, no need to fill out an e-Consult and no need to go through a triage. Teachers will have direct access to our highly experienced team of GPs
  • Choose a doctor you're comfortable with - To have an even more personalised care, teachers have the power choose to see the same GP in every appointment

Work-related musculoskeletal disorders account for 24% of ill health in the education sector in the UK. By including physiotherapy in your health plan cover, teachers at your school can benefit from the following:

  • 3 x 30-minute online Physiotherapy appointments annually - Teachers will have 1 initial physiotherapy consultation and 2 follow-up consultations each year
  • Online appointments - Teachers no longer need to travel especially when they're suffering from body pain. They can easily access Physiotherapy whenever they need support

Teaching staff report the highest rates of work-related stress, depression and anxiety in Britain. For school leaders, it's important to look after the teachers' mental health so they can perform at their best and be a great role model for their students. By including mental health coverage in your Health Plan, your school's staff can benefit from the following:

  • 3 online mental health consultations annually - Teachers can rest assured knowing that they can get the mental health support they need whenever they need it, as they will benefit from 1 x 45-minute initial consultation and 2 x 30-minute follow-up consultations with our mental health experts each year
  • Online appointments - Teachers can book a discrete appointment and see our mental health expert from the comfort of their home or anywhere they feel safe and comfortable
  • Book an appointment online - Teachers will be able to book an appointment at a time and date that works for them
  • Direct access to a psychologist - No need for a GP referral. Teachers can book an appointment directly with our expert Psychologist whenever they need support

Staff illness

The average days lost in the education sector due to staff illness are significantly higher than average across all industries.

With staff unable to access primary care or relief for common issues, it falls to the schools to organise and pay for cover for however long it takes to access treatment.

Quick and convenient access to GP, physio and mental health appointments means quick medical intervention can reduce time off work.

Work-related stress

Teaching professionals report the highest rates of work-related stress, depression and anxiety in Britain. This is not surprising considering the size of mixed-ability classes, tight budgets and the strain of being the first port of call for struggling students.

Teachers need to have the support they need to equip themselves with the tools needed to deal with these pressures.

Mental health support from an expert psychologist means teachers have the tools to cope with stress.

Staff retention

The teaching profession is facing problems with retention at all levels of experience. Teacher training applications have dropped back down to pre-pandemic levels.

Creating a supportive culture that values your teachers' wellbeing will go a long way to acknowledging the lived experiences of teachers and improving them.

Attract and retain top talent with private access to GP, mental health and physio appointments.

By offering teachers access to GP, physiotherapy and mental health appointments you can show a clear commitment to their health and wellbeing to maintain a happy and healthy workforce. Enhancing recruitment, improving retention rates and boosting workplace attendance can all be achieved with Mayfield Clinic Health Plans.

Mayfield Clinic Health Plans allow you to offer teachers at your school private healthcare at a low cost. Signing up to a health plan is quick and easy. It can all be done online, and you will have a dedicated account manager at Mayfield Clinic should you need to speak to us. Your staff will then have access to appointments which they can book and attend easily online. They will not need to pay for the appointment themselves and then claim the money back, their appointment will simply be deducted from their annual allowance.

Access to GPs – if teachers are sick or need to speak to GP about any worrying symptoms, they should be able to do quickly. Mayfield Clinic Health Plans offer immediate access to expert Oxford based GPs from the comfort of their own homes.

Access to physiotherapists – there are a range of body pains and aches which can arise for teachers during work. When in pain, Mayfield Clinic physiotherapists are here to help.

Access to mental health support – workplace stress is one of the leading causes for staff illness from work. Giving teachers access to mental health support when they need it is one of the best health benefits you can give them.

The average price of private health insurance for employees in the UK ranges from £250 to £1000 per employee per year. Mayfield Clinic Health Plans give employees quick, direct access to expert Oxford based GPs for as little as £120 per year.

No. You and your employees can use Mayfield Clinic’s Health Plans alongside existing NHS GP practices. We believe in joined up care, so with your permission, we can share your consultations notes back with your NHS GP so they will have a full picture of your care history.
