News | New NHS app for Leeds students

A free mobile phone app has been launched designed to provide healthcare information for students living in Leeds.

Created by NHS Leeds West Clinical Commissioning Group, the app contains information on: the NHS ‘111’ telephone service, how to register with a GP or dentist, where to go for urgent healthcare, smoking and alcohol and drug and mental health related support.

Dr. Simon Stockhill, Medical Director at NHS Leeds West CCG said: “We’d really welcome what young people have to say about health services and encourage them to give us feedback about their experiences”.

One student who tried the app said: “It was helpful. There’s a lot of information that I wouldn’t know how to access. It could potentially be really useful in an emergency.”

The ‘Leeds Student Health’ app is free to download on Apple and Android devices
