London based workplace health support platform expands range of services for women
London headquartered workplace health support platform Peppy, has announced the launch of an expansion to its Women’s Health Service,mirroring the Men’s Health Service the company already offers.
Via employers such as Santander, Wickes, Novartis, and Clifford Chance, and via PMI providers Vitality and AXA Health, Peppy already supports over a million employees across its existing services, including menopause, fertility, pregnancy, new parenthood and men’s health.
This launch of further support for employees who are female, those who identify as female or assigned female at birth, is in direct response to current clients asking for a fuller health service for women.
The new service expands on the existing provision to now encompass more areas, including gynaecology, contraception, common conditions (PCOS, endometriosis, breast care, UTIs, PMS etc.), sex, nutrition, exercise, mental health (including body image, eating disorders, bereavement, and grief), addiction, relationships and more.
Dr Mridula Pore, CEO of Peppy, commented: “Technology has really helped democratise this type of human-led support, making it much easier for more employers to offer it, which is important as all female employees should be able to access the support they need, when they need it.”
“Standard healthcare ignores the physical and emotional issues that many women experience. From our research, we found 85 per cent of women experiencing at least four conditions during their working life that are currently underserved by standard healthcare services.
“Support could be required at any time during an employee’s working life and therefore having workplace support available that is easily accessible, devoid of any wait time, from expert practitioners is what’s really needed, and this speaks volumes about how much an employer values its staff.”
