As a medical student, moving round hospitals every 5 weeks means all the contacts and bleep numbers you have get wiped whenever you change.

Induction has been really useful for getting hold of people I need to find or even for ward rounds, helping out the doctors when they don’t know the numbers for departments/specialists. It’s so good for getting you out of a hole in a hurry when you’re in an unfamiliar hospital.

Would thoroughly recommend it for anybody in the clinical setting.

Needs internet connection to log in

Since the update where you have to create an account to use the app, it keeps on logging me out. It requires an internet connection to log back in & there are some bits of my hospital where I have no reception so it’s quite frustrating.

Any chance of stopping the app logging you out?

It would definitely have been a 5⭐️ before this issue! Really handy and has saved me loooootttts of time on hold waiting for switchboard.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your review. Yes, we are currently working on a new version which should solve this problem. it should be released very soon.

One of my most used apps

This app is fantastic - saves you having to go through switch for numbers (saves so much time) can answer bleeps directly from my phone, great when on call. Also the fact we can check ext’s and bleeps for other hospitals has helped so much when referring patients.
