“I just wanted to thank SCET for all the fantastic work they did on building the Self-Help Guide App. I really think it has huge potential to make a difference to the management of those conditions that present frequently to primary and secondary care and should hopefully reduce unnecessary attendances to GPs and Emergency Departments.
