'Healthcare in Your Pocket' uses a wealth of information from the NHS Choices web site and offers it in an iPhone friendly format, plus much more.

NHS Service Finder
================
Find different health related services within England by either specifying an address or using your current GPS position. The results are displayed on a map and you can get directions too.

PLEASE NOTE: NHS Service Finder information is limited to England only and so is not UK wide and all data is provided by NHS Choices.

You can currently search for the following services:
• A&E Hospitals
• GPs
• Dentists
• Pharmacies
• Opticians
• Hospitals
• Walk-In Centres
• Blood Donor Centres
• Stop Smoking Services
• Sexual Health Services


Health A - Z
==========
Browse the NHS Choices' Interactive Encyclopaedia of health conditions. You can search by ''body part, first letter or 'whole body'. Specially designed to bring the NHS Choices 'Health A-Z' to the iPhone.


In Case of Emergency (ICE)
======================
You can record your ICE (In Case of Emergency) details, which could provide health professionals with valuable information. You can enter details about yourself such as your allergies, medications, blood type and more. The information you enter is only stored on the iPhone. It is not held on the internet or shared anywhere else.


Single Tap Emergency
==================
Finally, the app provides the ability to call NHS Direct or Emergency Services with a single tap. If you are outside the UK, the Emergency dial function will dial local emergency services in most countries of the world.
