App review: Better Health Channel

The app provides health information and a Victorian-based health services search directory. It includes a range of content, including articles on healthy living, first aid procedures, healthy recipes and the ability to make customised shopping lists – you can even make personalised health alerts for things like heat, UV levels, smog and pollen. 

Perhaps most usefully, it has a discovery by suburb or postcode of after-hours providers of health services, including doctors, dentists and pharmacists. It also has emergency medical contacts for a range of issues.

You can download it on from both Apple and Google stores.
