The ‘Health Help Now App’ is a National health resource that is being rolled out across the country by each Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). With your permission, we would like to include your organisation in it. The App will help people in the community search for and access health and wellbeing services provided by the NHS, privately or locally by the Voluntary and Community Sector. It is a good opportunity to promote your services and our sector as a whole!
