    NHS app ok but I do prefer the British Red Cross app wen it comes to medical conditions the British Red Cross app is packed will load of important advice and has a good selection of videos on different medical emergencies and thats important especially as you have to wait 4 hours in a NHS accident & emergency department for treatment and it doesn't matter wat time day /night you go there it's alw

    Since updating on 7 April 2015 at 12.30pm it wont even open, cleared cache, forced close, still won't start!! So limited, slow and seriously lacking detail.

    There are no options for abdominal pain, or paediatrics and urinary problems etc. Waste of time really
