I love an app.

I love apps that actually add something to my life not just clutter up my phones home page.

Scot1I love an app that helps me find a solution to a problem, not add to it because its so complicated.

I love an app that shows me where my local services are, helps me learn more about my condition or work out if I need to seek help for a problem I am experiencing.

I love an app that allows young people to access healthcare and information in a format they use – digital – not a phone line or a leaflet.

This app has been produced by NHS Scotland. So that means that for those of us not living the dream in Scotland the service location finder wont work. BUT everything else does and is applicable to all.

You can find the apple and android versions of the app here:


Apple – https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/nhs-self-help-guide/id1147691875?mt=8


Android – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.scet.nhs.caretest&hl=en_GB


Does anyone know if there is an English, Welsh or NI version of this app?
