NEW LOCAL HEALTH APP FINDER
NHS Kernow has teamed up with the Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Applications (ORCHA) to create this health apps library website for residents of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. The shared aim is to make it quick and easy to find safe, approved health and wellbeing apps which can make a real difference to people’s lives.
Health apps are a great way to give people information that will benefit them and their communities. They can help with managing health issues, such as mental health or respiratory conditions. And they can help people to live healthier, happier lives through exercise and healthy living. There are thousands of health apps to choose from. And with the COVID-19 pandemic, demand is greater than ever.
