The NHS in Merton has a free website and app 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 Health Help Now website and app can guide you to the service that will help you best.
Health Help Now lists common symptoms for people of all ages and helps you find the best place for treatment for them near you. It shows the nearest services, whether they are open or closed, and provides a map of their location and directions.
Health Help Now also offers reliable health advice and links to other useful websites. Available at www.healthhelpnow-nhs.net, it works on smartphones, tablets, and computers.
The Apple and Android versions feature a health wallet, where users can make notes about symptoms or questions they may need to ask a GP, keep a list of health appointments and contacts, and save their favourite Health Help Now pages to find them again in one click.
To find the downloadable apps, just search Health Help Now at the Apple Store and the Android Google Play Store.
Why not download Health Help Now to your device now so you have it to hand when you need it?
