Multi Acute Communications Capability app

Initiatives to bring care closer to home and keep patients within their own communities come at a cost. Their implementation mean that patients previously ill enough to be hospitalised are either cared for entirely within their communities, or discharged earlier than previously into those communities. Community teams more familiar with their current patient groups will be faced more complex and acutely unwell... more »

999 location app

When you use your smart mobile phone in an emergency and dial 999 your location is automatically transmitted with your message.

iCare (Liver) - idea for an App

However, the combination of both is what will drive health behavioral change and drive better health outcomes for patients and citizens.

Eat Out Eat Well

My favourite idea for an app is one that will help consumers find a food establishment that offers healthy options. The Food Standards Agency runs a food hygiene rating scheme to help consumers find a restaurant that has good food hygiene ratings, but there is nothing to help them find restaurants that offer healthy options. In Surrey we run a healthy eating scheme for caterers called Eat Out Eat Well. The Healthy... more »

McFall's Mystical Monitor

This app is intended to provide a self-reflective tool for everyday concerns; it could also be used as an aid to counselling or psychotherapy. It is derived from an activity that some psychologists used with their patients in the 1960's.
