For more information about accessing the app on your Apple or Android device, go to the Healthhub website.

The COVID recovery app is free to download on both phones and tablets from the App Store and Google Play.

Once downloaded, there are four steps to getting started:

  1. To begin, navigate through the introductory screens before clicking ‘sign-up’
  2. Enter their details into the sign-up form
  3. Check for a confirmation email and verify their email address
  4. Finally, return to the app and ‘log-in’

 

Below are a host of resources for you to use to inform your patients about the app. This includes digital copies of flyers and posters for you to send, as well as templates for emails, letters and social media posts. You may also be interested in the consultation guidance for referring your patients to the app over the phone or virtually.
