    Online tools to help improve health, care and wellbeing wanted

    The NHS Commissioning Board is looking for good examples of online tools to help people improve their health and wellbeing. It is creating a directory of online tools, often called apps, to help people find the best online tool for their condition or health need. People and organisations who are designing online tools for specific conditions or health areas are invited to submit these for consideration for the directory.

    The directory will be a trusted listing of online health and care tools, all of which will be accessible from mobile devices or PCs. The tools will help people use good information to make choices about their health and care. People will be able to input their own health details to receive personalised information through the tool and then share this with their clinicians or care staff if they choose to do so.

    Developers and organisations who want to get involved can email tools.feedback@nhs.net to arrange to speak to the team.
