Healthy app

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Kentish Express Time Capsule From Our Archives -

Ash­ford par­ents and car­ers are urged to use an NHS app if they, or their chil­dren, need med­i­cal help dur­ing next week’s half-term hol­i­days. Health Help Now has been de­vel­oped by Kent and Med­way GPs, hos­pi­tal doc­tors, paramedics and other health pro­fes­sion­als. Dr Navin Kumta, chair of NHS Ash­ford Clin­i­cal Com­mis­sion­ing Group, said: “The ground-break­ing app, which has been used more than 100,000 times, has tailored ad­vice for dif­fer­ent age groups, and shows the near­est ser­vices and whether they are open or closed, with di­rec­tions.” The free app can be found on Google Play, the Ap­ple App Store or at www. health­help­now-nhs.net.
