Heath Help Now

Need Health Help now? New NHS web “app” to help you

Health Help Now

The NHS has launched an innovative new service to help you find the right treatment, especially when you are not sure what to do or who to contact.

Whether you have a baby with a high temperature, a child who is being sick, a teenager who is feeling low or you have sprained your ankle and for many other health problems, the ground-breaking Health Help Now web app can guide you to the service that will help you best.

Developed by Kent and Medway GPs, hospital doctors, paramedics and other health professionals, Health Help Now - online at www.healthhelpnow-nhs.net - is free to use.

It lists common symptoms and helps you find the best place for treatment for them. The suggestions are tailored to five different age groups: baby, child, teenager, adult and older adult.

Health Help Now shows the nearest services and is time sensitive, showing whether services are open or closed and providing a map of their location.

So if you need treatment for a minor injury on a Sunday, to find a pharmacy late at night, or are not sure where to go for care, Health Help Now can help.

Health Help Now also offers advice – such as where to buy medication when pharmacies are closed - and links to other useful websites. It works on smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers and has instructions for saving it to your device for easy use.

Why not save it now so you have it readily to hand when you need it?
