This is exactly the NHS website, not even well optimised for tablets. Not much point taking up storage space when you can just bookmark it in a browser, since it needs Internet access to work anyway.

Nhs app at best average I was looking at way a other reviewer said about 4 hour waiting times in A&E wen the department is even quiet I can't work out why there still a 4 hour wait time as well also nhs could save if you didn't need to attend all them out patient appointments after injury only to see a junior doctor who is no were near as qualified and experienced as your own GP there not necessary and give unesseray load on nhs hospitals and cost think doctors training in medical schools training needs to be ripped up and started again making new medical students be more multi skilled in different areas of medicine that would mean you would have specialist in hospital who could at present do ear nose and throat specialist do eye problems as well that way save the nhs I fortune was watching a forge in TV channel on me phone and a doctor in a hot country had to carry out operation on some who had a spear straight throw his chest cavity the same them carried out a catrax operation then he had to do tooth extraction make UK doctor look semi skilled compared to a doctor in a hot country
