Health Help Now
NHS Lewisham Clinical Commissioning Group has launched a new mobile and online service to help people in Lewisham to understand where they should go for treatment, especially when they need health care in a hurry or late at night or at the weekend.
The Health Help Now app can be downloaded for free at http://www.healthhelpnow-nhs.net/ for web users or by searching in your smart phone app store.
It helps people check their symptoms and find the best place for treatment – showing which nearby services are open. Importantly, it will help people to know when to go to A&E, and when not to.
The app helps users by breaking down symptoms by age group – baby, child, teenager, adult and older adult - making it easier for people to find the right treatment for them. Health Help Now also offers advice – such as where to buy children's medication when pharmacies are closed – and links to other useful websites.
