When NHS London came to us looking to improve their innovative myhealthlondon website, we were thrilled to assist them in providing patients with enhanced access to healthcare information across the capital.
City hall hosted a spectacular evening event to mark the launch of the WellHappy app designed by BrightLemon for myhealthlondon and NHS London.
The high profile launch has been supported by celebrities Joss Stone, Ralf Little, Joe Swash and Sadie Frost who have all been involved in promoting the app and site which will help to direct young people which organisations to turn to when they need help.
The internet is a world of paradox, extremes and contradictions and the world of online health is not exempt. On the one hand people may spend less time physically interacting with each other, sitting crouched in front of a screen staring at webpages for hours on end – which, as this infographic shows , is bad for our health.
We have designed and created a social community portal to attract young people in London to engage with important health issues that affect them.
MyHealthLondon allows people to register, get involved and create profiles to access expert Q&As, blog and discuss their feelings and experiences, upload videos and access support and information for mental, sexual, drug and alcohol health issues.
Sometimes social media sites like Facebook and Twitter are blamed for increasing isolation, encouraging people to spend more time interacting with their computer or phone than with people in the real world. But they also make it possible to interact with potentially millions of other people with the same concern and receive support and advice.
