A Child Health App developed with support from NECS has received a “highly commended” rating in the Best Use of Digital Marketing category at the Association for Healthcare Communications and Marketing Awards.

The judges said that “…this was a beautifully designed and delivered app…” and they particularly liked the audio answers for busy parents.  The judges believe the app will have a long lasting use, and word of mouth and ongoing support will aid more downloads.

To see how the free app works, search for ‘NHS child health’ in Google Play or the App Store, or to find out more, contact helen.fox6@nhs.net

The app is also shortlisted for a Patient Engagement Network National Award in the category of Innovative Use of Technology/Social Media at a ceremony on 21st March.

Good luck to our Communications Team!
