HEALTH APPLICATIONS

With the growth in mobile phone apps it can be difficult to know where to start if you are looking to make a few health improvements in your life. We have selected a few NHS supported apps for you to consider:

Health Help now

Health Help Now has been developed with input from local GPs, hospital doctors, and other health professionals. It lists common symptoms and offers suggestions for treatment. The one which works best for most people is listed first and the other suggestions follow in order. Health Help Now then links through to local services, and shows whether they are open or closed and their location.

For patients using an alternative to A&E could mean:

  • More convenient service
  • Little or no time in a waiting room
  • Treatment by professionals who are experts in common illnesses and injuries – rather than A&E staff who specialise in emergencies.

For the NHS this could mean:

  • Faster treatment for people who are seriously hurt or ill
  • Better use of staff and NHS funds

By using Health Help Now you are helping the NHS save A&E for those who really need it.

If you require urgent treatment for symptoms which are not listed on Health Help Now, please ring NHS 111.

Many of us eat and drink too much sugar without realising it. The Change4Life Sugar Smart app lets you scan the bar code and food and drink labels to see how much total sugar they contain. That way you can make healthier choices when shopping for food and cut your sugar intake.
