Our colleagues at the Farming Health Hub have alerted us to the existence of Help@Hand, a digital signposting app which shows you what services and support groups are available in your area via your GP surgery.
The real benefit of the Help at Hand App is that it is so easy to use. Whatever information the user is interested in just needs them to tap it and it will take you there. If there is a number, you wish to call just tap it and it will start the call – no need to write the number down or even to dial it. If you wish to email a contact, you come across simply tap it and it will set up you email message so all you have to do is write the message – no need to copy the often-lengthy email address etc. If you want to read more about a group on their website or to attend a group or session just tap the web address and it will open up their website exactly where you need to be.
You can save your favourite services so no need to go hunting for them again and you can share the services with colleagues and friends.
All you need to do is download the app or visit their website – once you have selected your GP surgery on the map, click on “search” and you will see all the options available.
Alternatively you can visit their website on https://hand.community/
