Choose Well Bus in Birmingham High Street

Around 1,000 people visited the 'Choose Well' bus in Birmingham at the beginning of the month to find out more about health services available to them. 

The bus, which visited Birmingham High Street on  Wednesday 8 January, was manned by staff who were demonstrating a brand new mobile phone app, which allows users to find out where the nearest service is to treat their health need.

The app, which is the first of its kind in the region, was developed by Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) across Birmingham, Solihull and the Black Country.  It gives users  advice on which health service, including pharmacies, GP practices, out-of-hours services, NHS 111 and walk-in centres, is the best option for treating their illness or injury.

As well as helping users decide on the right service, an interactive map also pinpoints the nearest available service to their location, whether they are at home, work or out-and-about.

The app is available to download now on iPhone and Android phones by searching for 'Choose Well West Midlands’.
