Lockton launches clinical advisory offering

Lockton has teamed up with HCA to provide clients with access to an independent occupational health and clinical advice committee.

The new Clinical Advisory Service offers support across a range of specialist areas, including access to qualified medical officers for ad-hoc queries; clinical review and advice on well-being strategy, HR policy and employee communications; independent advice to trustees of healthcare trusts and second opinion services for complex health and risk claims.

It also offers individual health advice for partners and executives; regular updates on evolving medical developments and new drug therapies; and advice on responding to critical incidents and other health related risks, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chris Rofe, senior vice-president, and head of client development, Lockton Companies LLP, comments: “We know companies are often struggling to access high quality, independent clinical advice. The COVID-19 pandemic has further demonstrated this need. The Clinical Advisory Service has been something we’ve wanted to develop for some time and we are delighted to have HCA partner with us and add real value to our clients.”

Gill MacLeod, executive senior occupational health physician, HCA Primary Care, added: “For many years we’ve wanted to develop a service which gives clients ready access to health advice, allowing them to support their employees in the best possible way. During this time when the healthcare landscape is changing at pace, regular access to advice is critical. We’re delighted to support this excellent service at a most challenging time for many businesses.”
