New App

Local GPs in Stockport are encouraging residents to get ‘appy’ and look after their health by using their smartphones and tablets.

It’s estimated that four out of five people in the borough have a smartphone and medics want to tap in to this growing trend.

A Stockport Health & Care Finder app has been created to give people a chance to take more control of their own health. This will help to increase people’s understanding of how to use and access local health and social care services, self-care options and lifestyle opportunities.

The app will give users rapid and easy access to up-to-date local health and social care information including a directory of pharmacies, GPs, hospitals, clinics, care homes and other services.

At a touch of a button users will be able to find the services that are nearest to them at any time. For example, if you’re trying to find a late night chemist, the app will automatically sort out which are the closest to you and then give you the opening hours, address and contact details.

You can also set up favourites for faster access to the services you’re interested in and dial them directly from your app.

There are links on it to videos about how best to take care of yourself if you are ill and how to prevent ill health. The app can also be used to send out reminders about health checks and screening entitlements.

It’s also hoped the app will help to encourage high users of NHS services to get the right care in the right place.

WHEN TO USE NHS 111

HEARING LOOP

Hearing Loop

We have today installed a hearing loop at the practice. A hearing loop is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to ‘T’ (Telecoil) setting. We hope this will help our hard of hearing patients have a better experience at the practice.
