Patients given 'apps' to manage their health

Patients are being prescribed free or cheap "apps" by their GPs to manage their health better under a new initiative by the Department of Health.

The mobile applications aim to assist the public and patients in using NHS services more efficiently. They will help people manage conditions and assist them to make better life choices in a way that is convenient for them.

Popular apps include one that gives advice how to track blood pressure and how to cope with long-term conditions such as diabetes.

After the NHS Choices website was visited by 14.5 million people in the last month, combined with a report by Asymco showing that 30 million apps are downloaded a day, health bosses believed that creating an application was the next logical step.

Andrew Lansbury, health secretary, said: "Information about your health is a service, just like the GP surgeries, Walk-in Centres and hospitals that millions of people access every week.  With more information at their fingertips, patients can truly be in the driving seat."
