Get 24/7 access to Irish doctors, nurses and medical experts with this handy virtual health plan

Brought to you by Irish Life Health

A quicker, more convenient way to check in on your health.

Let’s be honest – visiting a GP or health professional every time you have a small health niggle isn’t always possible.

Often, work and life commitments can get in the way of health appointments and if we’re feeling unwell outside of working hours, a trip to the doctor’s simply isn’t an option. Plus, in these modern and digital-savvy times, face-to-face medical appointments can seem like a restrictive way to manage your healthcare, making virtual check-ins a quicker and more convenient way to look after ourselves.

With that in mind, Irish Life Health’s MyClinic is a healthcare solution that fully embraces the perks of these digital and virtual tools, through an online hub that offers phone or video access to all the health professionals you need most. Choosing a service like MyClinic means the likes of doctors, nurses, counsellors, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists and more are all available at the tap of a button, offering you top-quality virtual healthcare from the comfort of your own home.

In the knowledge that checking in with health professionals face-to-face isn’t always possible, they’re bringing healthcare directly to you. Whether it’s a quick chat with a nurse, a last-minute doctor’s appointment or checking in with a counsellor for advice, MyClinic offers 24/7 virtual access to a wide range of clinical experts, making it so much easier to look after your health in your own time.

Irish Life Health customers can enjoy all the benefits of the MyClinic services on their health insurance plan. Here are just some of the perks it covers…

Get 24/7 healthcare from the comfort of your own home

Time spent in waiting rooms or travelling to and from appointments is simply not ideal when work or home life is exceptionally busy. However, customers of Irish Life Health have another option that makes scheduling appointments around hectic schedules much easier.

Nurse On Call is a quick and convenient way to discuss a whole host of general medical concerns with a registered nurse, giving you 24/7 access to qualified professionals over the phone. For new parents and expectant mothers, the Nurse On Call service can help with general pregnancy queries or common pregnancy symptoms, and can even refer you to a midwife for more specialist issues.

Look after your mental health

When something’s on your mind, it can be really helpful to chat through the problem with a professional. But we’re not always quick to give our mental health the attention it deserves. In fact, many of us are guilty of giving our physical aches and pains more attention that our mental well-being.

That’s where MyClinic’s Virtual Counsellor can help. With this service, you’ll have access to professionally trained counsellors 24/7, on hand to listen via phone or app and give considered and practical advice when you need it. You can book an appointment whenever suits you, making it so much easier to give your mental health the attention it needs, when you need it.

Smash your healthy eating goals

Whatever your motivation, working with a qualified and registered dietician is sure to increase your chances of success and with MyClinic, it couldn’t be easier to access free nutritional support.

The Virtual Dietician service offers unlimited advice on food and nutritional health, including weight loss and management, family nutrition plans, support with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Digestive Disorders, managing intolerances and allergies or improving your immune system through diet.
