The NHS app library is expected to reopen at the end of March, according to Indra Joshi, clinical lead digital in urgent care at NHS England, who was speaking at the Digital Technology Show in London earlier on this week. The library, which will start out with very few products, will be available through NHS Choices. It has been co-designed by NICE, Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency, Public Health England (PHE) and NHS Digital.
This will be good news for app developers who want some sort of validation for their products, but given the problems the last app library had, and the difficulties of testing every app, this is likely to be slow going. Article here.
