Paycare’s Bundle Wellbeing package for employersTuesday 08 September 2020
Our main sponsor Paycare have launched their Bundle Wellbeing package, which aims to help employers engage their teams and to keep them mentally, physically and financially healthy.
For £2 per employee per month, it includes access to a support helpline, round-the-clock GP appointments, and an extensive discount scheme. It’s designed to give employees working for businesses who sign up the opportunity to access a holistic wellbeing service.
Bundle includes three elements: the first is a round-the-clock telephone support with MyHelpline, which can be used to chat confidentially about a wide range of life events from stress management, debt or legal support and relationship breakdowns to signposting towards caring resources for elderly relatives.
Members will also gain access to Paycare’s well-loved 24/7 online and telephone GP consultation service to help them receive quicker access to healthcare support. MyPocketGP aims to take the pressure off the NHS and ensure those using it can get a telephone call, video consultation or message a doctor at a time convenient to them – without having to physically visit their medical practice.
The MyPocketGP app can be accessed worldwide, with all of the service’s doctors being experienced NHS GPs who can help any time, day or night. Either with a phone call or with the booking of a video consultation, follow up actions on the doctor’s advice can include a private prescription service with medication delivered to the patient’s door or even an open private specialist referral for further investigation of more complex conditions.
The third part of Bundle is access to Paycare Perks – a Paycare exclusive online discount platform which offers a variety of everyday savings on health and fitness, shopping, leisure and entertainment products and services.
“At Paycare we have a long and proud history of helping some of the region’s biggest and smallest employers to find the right way to support their teams,” Anthony Burns, Paycare’s commercial director, said.
“Many companies implement plans to support their employees’ health through our range of Health Cash Plans, but this isn’t the only way that we can help.
“Bundle, available for any business with two or more employees, is an affordable choice for employers who want to offer their teams some recognition for hard work, support for their mental, physical and financial health and as a reward that also proves great for business.
“For us, it’s all about looking at the entire health and wellbeing of our members — not just their physical health but their mental, emotional and financial wellbeing too. That’s why our Bundle has been designed to help employees access support for all these integral parts of their overall health and happiness and offer key benefits that find a logical place within almost any wellbeing strategy.
“Bundle mirrors the fantastic wellbeing services integral to many of Paycare’s Health Cash Plans, for a fraction of the cost at just £2 per employee. This was an idea conceived and trialled with over 300 members before we’d even heard the words Covid-19.
“We know that support like the virtual GP consultations and telephone counselling have become ever more essential during this health crisis, and with ongoing changes to working patterns, priorities and demands for lots of businesses, we know health and wellbeing support will continue to be on the agenda for all.
“Bundle is a great low-cost, high-value employee benefit, which supports wellbeing strategy, shows your team that you care while supporting their holistic health needs.”

Tam Forsyth (1949-2020)Friday 14 August 2020
We are saddened to hear of the death of Tam Forsyth.
The former ‘Well man passed away on Friday at the age of 71.
Tam was brought to the club by Bobby Howitt in 1967 from Stonehouse Violet and at that stage of his career played as a wing-half or inside-forward.
The boyhood Motherwell fan made his debut in October 1967 in a 3-1 win over Stirling Albion and would make 150 league appearances for the club, before joining Rangers in October 1972.
By the time of his transfer to Ibrox, Forsyth had already made his international debut in a European Championship qualifier away to Denmark in 1971 and would go on to amass 22 caps for Scotland.
‘Jaws’, as he would affectionately be known, became recognised as uncompromising defender at Ibrox and, when he bid farewell to Rangers in 1982, he had played more than 200 league games, securing silverware in treble-winning sides.
Latterly the assistant to Tommy McLean at Fir Park, he was the number two during a prolfiic 10-year spell.
With the club winning the First Division title in 1984/85, he would also be in the dugout for the 1991 Scottish Cup success and the Steelmen’s first foray into European competition.
A third-placed finish in 1993/94 in the Premier Division also came during his spell, a year Motherwell came within just four points of winning the league title.
Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

“They share our ambitions and values, and we’ve already enjoyed a lot of success together since our partnership began in 2018.
“We would like to thank them very much for their continued support and commitment to the club.”
Supporters who wish to add Paycare’s logo to their shirts can do so at our club shop from Friday, 21 August.
Priced at £5, all money after costs from every sale will be donated to the mental health charity SAMH.
“We are very grateful to Paycare and Motherwell FC for supporting Scotland’s mental health through SAMH,” a spokesperson for the charity said.
