Feeling unwell? Not sure where to go to get the help you need? Health Help Now will help you find the right treatment for your health needs whatever the time, wherever you are.
This app is currently under reassessment for Data Protection following changes introduced by GDPR.
Who is it suitable for?
Health Help Now is suitable for everyone to use, but under 16s should use it with their parents or guardians.
How does it work?
Health Help Now aims to help people find the right service for their health needs, especially when they need medical help fast but it is not a life-threatening emergency.
Health Help Now lists common symptoms and offers suggestions for treatment. It also signposts you to the relevant health and care services, so you can get the medical help you need, based on your location and the time of day - it shows you whether services are open and where they are.
Health Help Now has been developed with input from local GPs, hospital doctors and other health professionals.
How do I access it?
The app is available as a free download from the App Store and Google Play, or you can access the Health Help Now website.
