Curate’s egg?

It looks like a promising app but does not offer me the key issue about my health right now. Currently having ongoing NHS treatment I would have liked to use the app to find my next appointment. However the app does not seem to have sufficient security yet to verify who I am and does not have the links/trust of the NHS to access their records. Clearly this is high profile option and needs the highest security so I suspect it will not have the clearance for some time yet? On top of these issues it appears to be produced by a non-uk organisation with little or no connection to the NHS. So it might potentially lead to fraud or misuse. I will check it from time to time and talk to a senior NHS manager I know to understand just how good or trustworthy the app is!!? For now I will not use it again until it ‘grows up’?!

This application which is a genuine NHS application is used as part of the overall care provision in certain areas of the UK. It uses a renowned clinical decision support solution as part of the Symptom Checker (Odyssey from Advanced) and links to relevant NHS 111 services.
