More than 28,000 people across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire are benefiting from pioneering technology which is transforming healthcare in the city and county.
It’s called the Notts NHS App - Personal Health and Care Record and it's exclusively available to local residents who have downloaded the NHS App.
The NHS and social care services across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire are utilising the NHS App and another tech product called Patients Know Best (PKB) in order to revolutionise health and care throughout the city and county.
Patients at Eastwood Primary Care Centre are among those benefiting from the Notts NHS app, which gives them (and their healthcare professionals) everything they need to manage their care.
From accessing their medical records to managing appointments, reviewing medication and ordering repeat prescriptions, checking symptoms and tracking their own health.
The App also custs down on phone calls or unnecessary visits by enabling patients to send messages and complete questionnaires securely.
The App is local patients' one-stop-shop for health and care information and services, available in one secure place that people can access from the palm of their hand - or via the web if they prefer.
But don’t be confused - this isn’t the NHS Covid-19 App, used to alert people at risk of Coronavirus.
The Notts NHS App does not track your location, but does provide links to the 111 service if you are concerned about symptoms, including those of COVID-19.
It is being delivered by Connected Nottinghamshire, the recent winners of a Health Tech News Award who manage the Notts NHS App programme set up by Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care System.
