- School Teacher, Digital Healthy Schools Programme

 

 

"I’m fully supportive of ORCHA and of the Pro accounts which allow us to prescribe apps direct to our patients. Health and care apps can offer a huge benefit to patients, really empowering them to manage and improve their health. However there is a huge choice out there (over 300,000!), so ORCHA really helps all involved to understand which are the best and most trustworthy."

- Dr George Dingle, GP in Morecambe Bay

 

"This is hugely exciting for the people of Lancashire and South Cumbria as well as the health and care professionals who support them, for whom this is a win-win. Assured by ORCHA’s review process and the new Highest Rated Apps in key priority areas we can engage with all of our clinicians, encouraging them to ‘prescribe a health app’ where appropriate."

- Amanda Thornton, Digital Health Clinical Lead for Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria Change Programme (STP)

 

"What a lovely and informative report! Extremely useful and easy to read."

- Carley Morrow, CEO, AppAttic
