New app at hospital

PATIENTS and visitors can now access a new app to assist them in tracking the facilities at UPMC Beacon Hospital.

The app includes a 'find a consultant' feature and an 'appointment tracker' which enables users to manage their Beacon appointments from their phone and to set and receive free reminders.

Using the free app, launched by Ireland and Leinster star Johnny Sexton, above, patients and visitors can access comprehensive information on hospital services, travelling by car or public transport to the hospital and advice for overnight and day case patients.
