Patients in Lincolnshire are being given the tools to make more informed decisions about where to seek treatment.
Technology and innovative ways of working are playing an ever-increasing part in how people access NHS services in the county.
The healthcare system has recently invested in the new ASAPLincs website and app to give county residents a quick, easy to use and reliable method of identifying the best place to go for treatment for their needs.
Not only does the website and app mean they will be seen by the most appropriate clinician in the fastest possible time, it helps keep people away from hospital emergency departments when they don’t need to be there.
Ruth Cumbers, Urgent Care Programme Director for Lincolnshire, said: “We know that with lots of treatment options to choose from, it can be confusing for patients to know where is best for them to go.
“That is why we have developed ASAPLincs, which will help them find the best treatment for their needs. They will also likely be seen much quicker than if they went to one of our emergency departments.
“We want to give residents as much information and support as possible to help them make the best decisions for their treatment as we can and ASAPLincs is one way of achieving this.”
The website and app have been developed using the very latest attendance data from Lincolnshire’s emergency departments, coupled with detailed behavioural research into how our brains operate.
You can visit the website at www.asaplincs.nhs.uk and the app can be downloaded for free on both Apple and Android. Simply visit your app store and search ASAP Lincs NHS.
