Two custom in-house apps created to support patients suffering from Mental Health and Diabetes, part of a larger expanding support program for patients and their carers in the NHS. More details can be found on Healios' web site here: https://www.healios.org.uk

These apps are good examples of apps designed for utility and not glamour. They were implemented from the start with a limited financial & time budget, yet potentially making the lives of many patients in the UK easier. The apps target people who may in certain cases have difficulty navigating complicated interfaces, so they are as simple to use as possible, using 100% native and learned interactions at every opportunity and being as responsive as possible even on old/cheap devices.

The apps are available for both iOS and Android to try and help as many users as possible, although as always iOS proved to be the most reliable way to implement the "canonical" version and iterate based on the client's feedback as fast as possible.
