I just wanted to thank SCET for all the fantastic work they did on building the Self-Help Guide App. I really think it has huge potential to make a difference to the management of those conditions that present frequently to primary and secondary care and should hopefully reduce unnecessary attendances to GPs and Emergency Departments.

I downloaded the app at the Launch evening to my phone - I have used it numerous times and recommended it to my friends in other healthboards. It is excellent, easy to read and well laid out.

Working with the UWS team was a great experience, and one that delivered several significant conclusions. There was a high degree of commitment from them to deliver on the outcomes outlined from the start, and there were occasions I feel they went above and beyond in order to meet the overall objectives.
