Sensely Ask NHS
The ASK NHS app is a new app commissioned by NHS Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to help patients get the right healthcare they need at the right time. It has been developed by local GPs and leading IT company, Sensely. Using the app can help patients take more control of their own health
We are working hard to make sure that patients in Buckinghamshire get the right service when they need it. For patients that need to see a GP we want to make sure that they can get access through mobile phone or smart devices.
We have been commissioned to develop and deliver the ASK NHS app to support patients, registered with a Buckinghamshire GP get easier access to primary care services.
The ASK NHS app is free to download and features an interactive symptom checker which triages the patient to the most appropriate onward care service within appropriate timescale, effectively helping patients to choose the right service in Buckinghamshire.
