New local health apps library to manage your health and wellbeing from home
Online and digital health and wellbeing services have seen a huge boom in recent years but with thousands of apps out there it can be hard to know what is trustworthy.
That's why Derbyshire County Council has been working in partnership with The Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Apps (ORCHA) to develop a new digital apps library. More »
Health and care professionals and Derbyshire residents can now search and download from 100s of quality assured health and wellbeing apps.
All of the apps on the new library have undergone rigorous checks by ORCHA to ensure that they are of the highest possible quality.
All the apps have been reviewed against over 300 criteria including ease of use, clinical/professional assurance and data and privacy.
Apps include help with mental wellbeing, healthy lifestyles and even long-term condition management.

Think Digital When Contacting the Police
We are all leading very busy lives at the minute, and we understand that many people don't have the time to wait on the telephone in a queue.
We are therefore increasing our ability to deal with your non-urgent issues online.
You are now able to send us a message to make a report or ask a question, go back to your busy day or night, and we will call you back.
To contact us online, please use our social media channels, forms or live chat function on our website:
💻 Facebook: Send a private message to /DerbyshireConstabulary
💻 Twitter: Send a direct message to @DerPolContact
💻 Website: Visit www.derbyshire.police.uk More »
Our digital contact channels are monitored just as much as our phone lines. They are staffed by real people, not bots, and there are no automated responses. You will speak to one of our Call Handlers who will take the same information and action your report in the same way as they would on the phone.
At the moment, less than 10% of our non-emergency reports are made in this way.
Please use these online channels, and keeping the 101 line free for those who perhaps can't access the internet to contact us.
In the event of an emergency you should always call 999. » Less
