CCG designs patient signposting app

|

Doncaster clinical commissioning group (CCG) has designed an iPhone app to help patients choose the correct services. 

Choose Well Doncaster was designed by the CCG with help from interactive media students from the local college. 

The app aims to give advice on when it's best to use a local pharmacy, NHS 111, GP surgery, minor injury unit and A&E, using satellite navigation to guide users to the closest services. 

The app is currently free to download as part of a CCG pilot scheme. iPhone users can download the app here. If the scheme proves popular and Android version may be developed.

Dr Andy Oakford, the CCG’s lead doctor for unplanned care, said: “The app will display where the closest services to you are in Doncaster when you are ill or injured. We gathered excellent feedback from the students during the development of the app and hope to work in partnership with them on other projects in the future.”

Ian Latham, assistant director of the School of Creative Industries at Doncaster College said: “The school of Creative Industries is delighted to be able to work with Doncaster CCG. Partnerships such as this provide valuable real world experience for our students and will undoubtedly help them to secure their futures. When the project is as valuable to the wider community as this one, it enhances the experience all round and gives the students a real boost.”

More information on Choose Well Doncaster can be found on the official website and a small advert can found on the CCG’s YouTube page.
