Thomas Cook and Now Healthcare Group have renewed their GP app partnership for holidaymakers who fall ill in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia.
Holidaymakers who need medical advice while travelling abroad, and who have taken out travel insurance via Thomas Cook, can obtain GP and medication guidance and access an e-prescription through the Now GP app.
The partnership first launched in 2016 and since then travellers have received medical advice from UK-based GPs about a host of health matters such as sunburn, upset stomach, ear infections and chickenpox.
Lee Dentith (pictured), founder and chief executive of Now Healthcare Group, said it can be unnerving when someone is out of the country and they or their family member gets taken sick.
“We were the first digital health company to occupy this marketplace and we are delighted to continue to work with Thomas Cook and its customers,” he added.
Brian House, general manager of White Horse Ireland dac, the underwriter of Thomas Cook travel insurance, said: “We hope this partnership will continue to give our customers great peace of mind knowing that help is at hand if things go wrong while on holiday.”
