The Trust has launched a smartphone app called ‘SmartGP (Pennine Acute)’, aimed at GPs and users in primary care to assist in identifying services provided by The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust and to provide contact information to access those services.

The app has the Pennine Logo and is a free-of-charge download to users of iPhone (iOS) or Google (Android) smartphones via the Apple App Store or Google Play. To download the app, visit your app store, search on ‘Pennine Acute’ and install the software. 

Navigation in the app is easy, intuitive and there are a number of useful tools such as a Training Log, Reminder utility and an Expenses Log.  There is also a ‘Feedback’ area to report incorrect numbers or to provide suggestions on how the software can be improved.

GPs using their smartphone will be able to access information on the Trust from wherever they have an active cellular or Wi-Fi signal and it’s been primarily envisaged that it will be a useful reference when reviewing a patient’s care, whether in the surgery or at the patient’s home.

The app provides a very easy and accessible way of finding services, addresses, names and telephone numbers relating to Pennine Acute’s services.  The information is broadly the same as that on the Trust’s public-facing website.
