NHS Apps Library

There are many health and well-being apps available. To help people find those which meet national standards, regulations and industry best practice the NHS has assessed the apps on the list against a range of NHS standards.

Phone and tablet apps can be a useful aid to maintaining and improving your health and wellbeing but it can be confusing choosing the best one.  The NHS aims to help by assessing apps to ensure they cover national standards, regulations and industry best practice.

Examples include 

  • BlueIce, an app that helps young people manage their emotions and reduce urges to self-harm
  • Chill Panda, an app that suggests breathing techniques to help you relax more, worry less and feel better

The library provides links to apps which carry the NHS Apps Library's ‘NHS Approved’ stamp, which is awarded only to digital tools that meet quality standards for clinical effectiveness, safety, usability and accessibility.
