Cancer

A new app to help doctors with referrals for patients suspected of having cancer has been launched.
It features a quick reference guide for health professionals, including information on symptoms, signs and images of what to look out for.
It is available as a free download via the Apple and Google app stores.
The Scottish government commissioned the development of the app version of the Scottish Referral Guidelines for Suspected Cancer.
It was produced by the Scottish Centre for Enabling Technologies, based at the University of the West of Scotland.
The app can be continually updated when the user is in a wi-fi zone, giving them the latest information as quickly as possible. It can also be used offline.
