Ask NHS is a free app now available on the App Store (Apple devices) or Google Play (Android devices) connected to the GP practice. It can also be accessed at www.sensely.com/asknhs/home/start/. Available anytime, anywhere; the virtual healthcare assistant, Olivia, guides you through a symptom checker and then recommends the most appropriate care. This might be self-care advice via www.nhs.uk, a call back or direct appointment to urgent or emergency care.
You can also use Ask NHS to send questions to the practice and get more information, for example about travel, and to request a sick/fit note.
Ask NHS has been developed by local GPs and leading IT company, Sensely, along with Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
