Help design a new patient app!

Be one of the first people in Berkshire to see and feedback on a new innovative app which could allow you to have immediate, easy access to information about your health and wellbeing on your smartphone.

An NHS support unit is looking for residents in Reading and elsewhere in Berkshire to attend one of two discussion groups in November to seek views on:

  • the look and feel of the app
  • the types of health information you would like to have access to via the app
  • how you would use the app to help better manage your health
  • your wish list for longer term development.

The Reading event will be held Wednesday 21 November 2018, 6-8pm, at Reading Museum and Town Hall, Blagrave Street, Reading, RG1 1QH. Another one will be held in Newbury. Refreshments will be provided, including a buffet. Organisers are seeking a broad mix of residents, including people who have long-term health conditions.

The events are described as a chance to help shape new technology which will transform the way residents in Berkshire access and manage their care. Longer term, the app could allow you to input your own personal data and share this information with your clinician.
