Health Choices app available

Health Choices, a smartphone app that provides health guidance and information about NHS services has been released by Microsoft for use on Apple and Android devices.

The app, which was originally released by the company in collaboration with NHS Choices for its Windows Phone last month, gives users access to choice and treatment information from NHS Choices and to Microsoft’s HealthVault platform.

Users can search for NHS services such as A&E or GP practices by name, location or by how close they are to the user’s GPS location. Contact details for GPs, dentists, hospital departments and other NHS services are also provided.

The app also includes patient ratings on services, allowing people to make informed decisions about the best GP practice or hospital for them. A health A-Z displays condition symptoms and treatments, which includes the health encyclopedia and symptom checkers. Users can also look up services such as the nearest A&E department. There are also in-depth scorecards showing the government’s public performance data for local GPs, hospitals and other NHS organisations. Any user of the app can also choose to enter personal information about their own healthcare situation.
