Health Help Now - www.healthhelpnow-nhs.net

Health Help Now enables the user to select their symptom or need, and then locate their closest service based on the recommendation made by local GPs, paramedics, psychiatrists, hospital doctors and other health professionals. Health Help Now also offers a wide range of advice for common symptoms in all age groups.

 

Health Help Now is time and location sensitive, which means that whatever time of day or night and wherever the user is, the user can see where their nearest service is and what the opening hours are. Users can find details of services such as their GP practice, nearest pharmacy, walk-in-centre, and minor injuries unit to name a few. The web-app also gives phone numbers to a range of helplines, such as DentaLine, the Dementia Helpline and HopeLineUK, for teenagers with suicidal thoughts.
