Free NHS Health Service Finder – Mobile App

12 Aug

People across Sheffield are being encouraged to download the free Sheffield NHS health service finder and symptom checker smartphone app to help people access the right NHS services.
The app gives clear details about what each NHS service does, when it should be used and uses location settings to pinpoint the nearest services. It also includes a symptom checker, as well as information on self-care, first aid and healthy living advice about alcohol, smoking, healthy eating and weight, fitness and stress. You can also record notes, set appointment reminders and link to other useful services.
Dr Zak McMurray, Sheffield GP and NHS Sheffield CCG Medical Director said: “The app allows people to have important health information at their fingertips for when they need it the most. More importantly it is easy to use, easy to understand and free.”
You can download the free app for iPhone or Android by visiting your app store and searching ‘NHS Sheffield’.

Sheffields Waste Management Survey – A chance to have your say

12 Aug

Sheffield residents are being asked to have their say on potential changes to their waste and recycling services.
Despite saving more than £6 million from the annual waste services budget in the past three years, the council needs to save a further £3.4million by 2017.  Its plan is to increase the amount of recycling across the city and provide a more efficient service, without changing the collection frequency of black bins. Residents are being asked for their views on increasing the variety of plastics collected for recycling, such as yogurt pots and margarine tubs; introducing a second recycling bin in place of blue boxes and changing recycling collection days so that blue bin and box collection days for individual households may not be the same days as black bin days.
To take part in the Sheffield consultation, residents can visit the Sheffield City Council website at to complete an online survey from between midnight on 3 August and 15 September. There are two versions of the consultation, one being the main consultation, the other being targeted at residents living in flats. Alternatively, residents can request a paper copy of the consultation by contacting Waste Management on 0114 2037621 or by email:
See Council News website for further information.
