    Does not even show the nearest walk-in-centre to where i live. I cannot even update the core data.

    I live on the doorstep of a Minor Injuries dept and work 7 miles away at another yet according to this there are no services nearby. Not a good advert for NHS

    Works really well in Maidstone: it locates a chemist that has only just opened!

    Works great for me, good app!

    What does it do? My doctors surgery and my chemist have no knowledge of this. - is this another NHS cock up?
  • by Nikolai 18/02/2013
    Doesn't find any GPs, walk ins, dentists anywhere or with any postcode I entered. Newest version does nothing at all. Fail

    Great idea, but there are too many bugs. Do it right! After an update nothing has changed. Poor program, don't waste your time!
