GPs are encouraging people to download a free Sheffield NHS smartphone app to help them access the right NHS services during the winter months.

The health service finder and symptom checker app, launched by NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group, is to help people who live and work in Sheffield find the most appropriate NHS service for their illness or injury.

The app also includes a symptom checker, as well as giving clear details about what each NHS service does, when it should be used and uses location settings to pinpoint the nearest service.

Dr Zak McMurray, Sheffield GP and NHS Sheffield CCG medical director, said: “This mobile application allows people to have important information at their fingertips for when they need it the most.

“More importantly it is easy to use, easy to understand and free.”
