Real life case studies

Case study 1 – Second Opinion

Ms H aged 34 took advantage of her HSBC Health Services during a period in her life when she sought some professional counselling. After downloading the app, she booked a therapy session available as part of the mental health support services.

After 5 weeks of regular video sessions with her counsellor, she began to feel in a much better place and felt her problem had been explored with a positive outcome and she had the tools in order to move forward. Overall, she noted the benefits as a very worthwhile addition to her protection cover from HSBC Life.

Case study 2 – Remote GP

Madison, age 33, had a swelling on her eyelid. Her GP had prescribed an antibiotic cream, but the lump had returned and was increasingly painful. Maddie sought an urgent remote consultation with a GP via Square Health.

The remote GP was concerned that the problem was more serious than a simple infection, and advised her to visit A&E. She went immediately, was seen by an ophthalmologist and successfully treated.
