Canada Life has launched WeCare to its home finance customers, which provides a range of virtual health and wellbeing services.

The service provides 24/7 access to professionals who can provide virtual GP appointments, mental health support and legal or financial guidance, at no additional cost.

WeCare is available to customers’ immediate family members, allowing them to personalise the services they need.

All services are completely free to use, but there is a cost for private prescriptions.

Alice Watson, head of marketing, insurance at Canada Life, said: “We are thrilled to be able to roll out WeCare to each of our home finance customers and their families.

“The service provides immeasurable support from qualified experts at some of the most difficult times in our lives.

“Not only do we want WeCare to be useful and supportive if the worst should happen, but we also want to help people improve their daily wellbeing through options such as support to stop smoking or guidance on healthy eating and fitness.

“This has been the driving force behind the blend of wellbeing solutions, clinical and mental health support that WeCare will now provide to all of our home finance customers.”
