Your services

Here when you need us most

Sometimes, we could all do with a little extra support or a helping hand, and we’re here to give you just that. 

As an AXA – Global Healthcare member, you have access to a number of services to help you whether you need to make a claim or not. If you need to speak to a doctor, find a clinic or hospital, or just want a little extra support, there are a number of services available to you, all at no extra cost.

Virtual doctor service

If your local clinic is closed or you’re in a new country and you don’t speak the language, it can be difficult to know where to turn. Not anymore. Simply register and arrange an appointment with your independent virtual doctor service, day or night.

The service, provided by Advance Medical, gives you unlimited phone and video consultations with an internationally trained doctor who speaks your language – at a time and place that suits you. No more time wasted in a doctor’s waiting room.

Can I use the virtual doctor service?

Yes, if you’re an AXA member with a global healthcare plan1

If you’re an AXA member through a corporate scheme, you’ll have access to this service until 30th September 2020. 

What do I need to do?

Register today so you’re up and running. And if you have family members covered on your health plan, they can register too, as long as they’re over 18.

It’s easy to register and book an appointment: 
Download the Virtual Doctor from AXA app on iOS or Android app store. You can also visit, or call 24/7 on +44 (0) 203 4995 487 to arrange a call back.

Find a hospital or clinic

Search for your nearest hospital or clinic

If you’re somewhere unfamiliar and need to see a doctor, our provider search tool takes the time and trouble out of finding a hospital or clinic in your area. 

We work with over 1.4 million healthcare providers around the world, and you can use our online provider search tool to find your nearest hospital or clinic based on your location or the type of treatment you need. 

In most cases, when you use a provider from our AXA Select network, we can pay them directly for your treatment, so you don’t have to worry about settling any unexpected bills.

24/7 Health information helpline

When you have a health concern, it’s good to be able to speak to someone who can put your mind at rest. With our Health at Hand medical helpline, you have access to nurses, counsellors, midwives and pharmacists, all available through a simple phone call.

How can they help?

If it’s the middle of the night and your mind just won’t settle, the team of experienced nurses2 and counsellors will be there to give you the help and reassurance you need.

There’s also a team of midwives available, so if you have any questions about your pregnancy or baby, there’s always somewhere to get some answers.3

You can discuss your symptoms with a nurse, check your medication with a pharmacist, talk to a counsellor or just check something with a midwife. Whatever you need, our medical professionals are here to put your mind at ease – so you’re not worrying a minute longer than you have to.

Simply call +44 (0) 1892 556 753*

Our Health at Hand service is available 24 hours, 365 days a year. This service is strictly confidential and won’t affect your policy or claims.

Second opinion

Getting the right diagnosis is essential if you’re to receive the right treatment and care. Sometimes, when you’ve received an unexpected diagnosis, you’ll want to know that every option has been explored before making any big decisions.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with independent medical experts to provide a full review of your diagnosis and treatment plan, giving you extra reassurance when you need it most, wherever you are in the world.

How can they help?

Our independent health consultants go further than offering you a second opinion to give you reassurance on your initial diagnosis. 

When you use this service, you’ll be assigned a doctor, who’ll be your dedicated case manager. They’ll be on hand to answer any questions you might have and offer support all the way through from diagnosis to recovery. 

With your permission, they’ll gather all of the necessary medical reports and test results from your previous treatment and manage your case whilst it’s being reviewed by the world leading specialists. 

What do I need to do?

If you're interested in using this telephone consultancy service and want to find out if you’re eligible, call us on +44 (0) 1892 556 274*.


Evacuation and repatriation

In an emergency, you need to know that you can get the treatment you need. That’s why all our plans include emergency evacuation and repatriation cover, so if the treatment you need isn’t available locally, we can get you to where you need to be.

Whether it’s a short drive or an international flight away, our emergency assistance team will get you to the nearest medical facility that can give you the right care. And once you’re feeling better, we’ll get you back again too.

What do I need to do?

In an emergency situation when the treatment you need can’t happen in the local medical facility, call our Emergency Assistance Centre on:

+44 (0) 1892 513 999*

Terms and conditions apply. Full details are shown in the Membership Handbook.

Extra support if you’re diagnosed with cancer

Our plans cover you for lots of medical conditions, but with cancer cases on the rise around the world, we know that a bit of extra support if you receive a diagnosis can really help. 

Our Dedicated Cancer Case Managers are here to support you throughout your diagnosis and treatment to do anything they can to make your journey a little easier. You’ll have a dedicated case manager who will get to know you and your situation to provide extra support, at no extra cost. They can speak to your treating specialist and help you manage your claim throughout your treatment, so you and your loved ones can focus on what’s important.
