RESIDENTS are being urged to sign up to a digital app to help them discover groups and activities which could improve their health and wellbeing.

Evergreen Life is already providing GP Online services to over half a million people which allow patients to book doctor’s appointments online.

A new feature of the app will help people in the Bradford district find what is happening in their local community.

Bradford Council and the three Bradford district and Craven CCGs will provide a database of voluntary and community groups and activities, which will feature on the app.

Dr Taz Aldawoud, Bradford GP, said: "For example, if someone with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD) books an appointment online, or orders a repeat prescription, they can be matched with non-medical activities that have been shown to benefit the condition."
