The US manufacturer has confirmed that an NHS Direct app – designed and developed by Mobikats – is now available online.
It features a tool that allows users to answer a number of questions before being given specialist tips on how to treat a condition.
There is also the potential to generate a call from a nurse, who can advise on any problem.
