Find your nearest GPs surgery quickly and easily, anywhere in England!
England has almost 11,000 registered General Practices (GPs) and surgeries on the NHS alone. So if you've moved to a new area and need to find a doctor to register with, or if you need to sort out a new GP for someone else, from miles away, then this app will help! The app is based on Open Government data provided by the UK's Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) together with the Office for National Statistics Access to Services Team and covers 97.9% of all registered practices in England.
Since a general practice surgery may either be a single surgery, or many surgery sites belonging to one practice, you can use this app to search for a surgery around your current location, or look for one in another area (eg whilst on holiday, where you may be moving to, or for a friend) via a simple place name or postcode search. Distances can be displayed in metric or imperial units and can be configured via the application preferences.
'Find a GP' uses the built in GPS on the iPhone to get your current location, but can also locate an iPod Touch in built-up WiFi areas. If your location cannot be determined automatically then you can always enter your post code to get started. Please note that an internet connection is required to get location and map data.
