Are you after some health advice but don’t know where to turn? There’s an app for that.
Doctors in Havering have launched the Not Always A&E app, which helps residents decide which NHS service is right for them based on their symptoms which can be selected.
The app will also tell you how to get to your service.
The names, locations and opening hours of every pharmacy, GP surgery, urgent care centre and hospital A&E in Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge are included in the app.
There’s also a fun quiz which tests your knowledge about the most appropriate NHS service to use.
The app is the latest part of a joint campaign by health and council bosses to make sure only the most serious cases go to A&E and that people can find the right NHS service for them.
The app is free to download on Apple and Android devices through Apple Store and Google Play. All you have to do is search for NotalwaysA&E.
