Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How do you download the app?
The app is easily downloaded by either scanning a QR code, or pressing a link, which will take you straight to the app to download.

Is this just for Trust mobile phones?

No, the app can be download onto your personal smartphone.

Can I access the app on my iPad?

You can indeed.

Who is the app for?

The app has been produced and designed to offer current and future staff relevant information related to your work.

Can I make a request or notify something that needs changing?

Sure thing! This is our app. Let’s make it work for us. You can send a suggestion or request through the feedback form on the app or email us directly to the Communications Team. We would love to hear from you.

Why do we even need an app? All this information is available on the intranet
When we surveyed staff we discovered that a large percentage of staff that took part found it difficult to access the Trust’s intranet. This was either because they didn’t have access to a computer or did not have time to look whilst at work. We also found that some staff never accessed their email addresses. With the app you don’t need to be at work or on a Trust computer to access information and news.

Why is the app not on the App Store or Play Store?
The app has been developed with staff in mind and not the wider public, therefore availability is restricted to this website.

How much did it cost the Trust to produce?
The app hasn’t cost the Trust a penny to produce. The app is paid for paid advertisements. The advertisements are very discrete on the App, and are only advertisements which offer discounts / offers to NHS staff – win, win!

Why does it ask for permission to send notifications?
This is so we can send you push notifications to your phone or device on updates and important information. You can reject this permission but you will then not receive these notifications.
