Health and wellbeing apps approved by our healthcare professionals
Health and wellbeing apps can help with preventing, managing and recovering from a huge range of mental and physical health issues, but there are hundreds of thousands of health apps out there, and not all of them are safe. How do you find trusted health and wellbeing apps? We have the answer!
Birmingham Community Healthcare have a Health App Library where you can find health apps which have been independently reviewed to ensure they are:
- Clinically approved
- Up to date
- High quality
- Accessible and easy to use
The library can be accessed through: Birmingham Community (orchahealth.com)
We have collections of apps for:
- People with diabetes
- Families with young children
- Teenagers and young adults
- Healthy eating
- Muscle, bone and joint problems
Many more apps can be found on the library website by searching the whole library for key words, for example dementia, or falls. You can filter your search, so you only see apps that are free, or are for a particular age group.
Professionals who work at Birmingham Community can also send app recommendations to you via email or text message. Your health or care professional may send you a health app if they feel it would be beneficial to you.
