It has been developed by a local GPs and leading IT company, Sensely. Using the app can help patients take more control of their own health
We are working hard to make sure that patients in Lewisham get the right service when they need it. For patients that need to see a GP we want to make sure that they can get access through mobile phone or smart devices.
We have been commissioned to develop and deliver the ASK NHS GP app to support patients, registered with a Lewisham GP get easier access to primary care services.
The ASK NHS GP is free to download and features an interactive symptom checker with triages the patient to the most appropriate onward care service (self-care, NHS111, GP appointment or accident and emergency) within appropriate timescale, effectively helping patients to choose the right service in Lewisham.
More information about the app can be found at the One Health Lewisham website.
