NHS phone app to help keep you well this winter

on Tue, 10/12/2019 - 7:21pm

A free smartphone app which signposts to local health services such as GP practices, pharmacies and minor injuries units, is now available for download.

‘Health and Care Oxfordshire’ uses digital mapping to allow people to find your nearest health service, wherever you are in the county.

The app highlights the type of injuries or illnesses treated at minor injuries units or first aid units in Oxfordshire, and the advice and support provided by local pharmacies and GP practices.

The ‘Health and Care Oxfordshire’ app can be downloaded from the App store (see here) and Google Play (see here)

People can also find information via the app on a range of services delivered by sexual health clinics and where these are located in Oxfordshire.

It signposts to the county’s adult social care website, and also to Patient Access, which allows people to use online services provided by their GP practice.
