NHS Apps to help you


You can use NHSquicker – the free app which helps you spend less time waiting for treatment for a minor injury or illness.

NHSquicker gives you live waiting and travel times for NHS services which provide urgent care across Cornwall and Devon. The app provides information about the health care services available to you based on your location, helping you to choose the right service and spend less time waiting.

You can also use the app to find information about pharmacies, dentists, opticians, sexual health and GP surgeries.

If you are not sure where to go, contact NHS 111 and they will direct you to the most appropriate place for your needs.
