Sheffield GPs are encouraging people to download the free Sheffield NHS health service finder and symptom checker smartphone app to help people access the right NHS services this winter.
The app gives clear details about what each NHS service does, when it should be used and uses location settings to pinpoint the nearest service. It also includes a symptom checker, as well as information on self-care, first aid and healthy living advice about alcohol, smoking, healthy eating and weight, fitness and stress. You can also record notes, set appointment reminders and link to other useful services.
Dr Zak McMurray, Sheffield GP and NHS Sheffield CCG Medical Director said: “The app allows people to have important health information at their fingertips for when they need it the most. More importantly it is easy to use, easy to understand and free.
“During winter there can be a greater demand on our local health services, and it is vital that people access the right health services appropriate to their illness or injury.”
You can download the FREE app for iPhone or Android by visiting your app store and searching ‘NHS Sheffield’.
