Crawford & Company, the international insurance services firm, has launched a new healthcare network that can provide a range of integrated healthcare and wellbeing services.

The scheme aims to support employers and employees in managing absences from work caused by illness, accident or injury.

The network allows clients to access over 300 qualified doctors and other specialists plus a range of hospitals and investigative services.

Other key elements include access to a nationwide nursing network; over 400 physiotherapy clinics; psychological and counselling services; air ambulance and managed repatriation services; wellbeing services and gyms.

The network is being provided in partnership with Nuffield Proactive Health, Health Sure UK, IPRS and Aeromed 365, and Crawford says it aims to provide a flexible approach suited to individual needs.

It is estimated that 40 million working days are lost in the UK every year due to sickness and injury and that UK companies are losing £13.4 billion annually in direct absence costs.
