The Pando app is a secure communication and collaboration tool. It has been designed to help anyone working in health and social care. 

Pando offers a variety of features that aim to help you share information immediately, save time and make well-informed decisions.


Who is it suitable for?

Anyone with an approved NHS, Trust or hospital email address can use the Pando app.

How does it work?

The Pando app lets you: 

  • message individuals, teams or the entire staff
  • import, attach and securely send images (images are never stored on the device) 
  • create task and patient lists – which you can attach images and notes to, and share with colleagues
  • set yourself as unavailable so you stop receiving notifications and keep your colleagues informed about your availability 
  • find anyone in your hospital directory or the wider region
  • create and join groups with over 100 colleagues

The Pando app complies with NHS England and NHS Digital guidance, is certified by CyberEssentials, and meets all security standards under the Data Security and Protection (DSP) Toolkit and GDPR.
