Our 'beta' self-screening service is now ready for you to use >>


We also invite you and the people you care for or work with to participate in the further development of our service. 

Ideally you will be committing to use the service twice over a weeks, and then to let us know how you find it. We would also appreacite if you could let us know what happens in the following two months.

We can help you sign up and come on board with a video call, and two further 30 minute support sessions will be included if you need them.

It's completely free to use if you particopate in this way, we would however appreciate your thoughts and feedback in return.

Please sign up here, and we will guide you through the process.

If you need more information before you sign up, please do have a look the options below, read through our How it works page, or look at our Frequently Asked Questions page. If there's anything we've missed, just ask, we're here to help.
 

Why take part?

Individuals

We know that by providing the right tools and guidance, we can help you discover so much more about your health through the data you collect for yourself, and that this data will enable to you to access the care and treatment you need. Join in, and find out!

We will take you through a pre-asessment and welcome process so that we can make sure this is right for you and that you have everything you need. We will do this via an on-line form, or over the phone if that is more convenient for you. 

Organisations

If you have a duty of care for someone, and they have difficulty expressing their needs, how can you be sure that health issues are not going unnoticed? Perhaps you work with people who are more expressive, but their health needs are buried under other issues such as chronic stress or homelessness, or unmet social care needs?

We are very keen to work with local authorities, care providers, community led health projects and especially charities that support groups of individuals, or are focused on particular conditions. We are already working with The Ehlers-Danlos Support UK  and Hypermobility Syndromes Association.

Would you like the people you work with to better understand their health, and communicate their health needs?

Be the first to know about our forthcoming workshop and online seminars, where we will explore how to put people at the centre of health and care.

Research

We welcome inquiries from service designers, data researchers, and those researching participatory healthcare and ways to support people who are vulnerable and excluded from current health services in getting the help they need.

You are especially encouraged to join with us in researching collaboration and co-design with communities and.patient groups,

Get in touch to find out more, and see what we can discover together.

Design research

We are now conducting 'open' design research into how everyone's use digital health, and how and what features and support you would find most useful. This research is helpful to us, and to everyone developing services, products and apps. It is also being made freely available to everyone, and our draft report is already being circulated within the NHS.

We are now gathering a second round of responses, and the survey for this can be found here: 

Data Security and Confidentiality

However you take part, your rights and privacy will be respected. It is a core tenet of our service that your data is secure and only used in line with the permissions you give us.
