Low Carb Program made available to NHS login users
People with obesity, pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and polycystic ovarian syndrome are now able to access the award-winning Low Carb Program app using their NHS login.
Developed by Diabetes Digital Media (DDM), the Low Carb Program provides structured education and long-term behaviour change support for people wanting to improve their health.
The app provides the user with health coaching and personalised user experience so they can try to achieve self-selected health goals by reducing the amount of carbohydrates they consume to 130 grams a day.
The NHS login is a single, secure login that enables people to swiftly access health and social care apps and websites wherever the NHS login button is visible. It was created to make accessing various healthcare apps much easier for people.
Ian Phoenix, NHS Digital Director of Citizen Health Technology, said: “NHS login gives patients a single, secure login for their health and care apps and websites, allowing them quick on-the-move access to their health information – just look for the NHS login button.
“This means patients remain safe in the knowledge they are accessing their health data through a safe system designed by the NHS, for the NHS and people across England.”
Arjun Panesar, Chief Executive Officer at DDM, said: “Using NHS login with the Low Carb Program helps to make the user experience quicker and simpler. Members don’t want to have to remember password after password.”
The NHS login access is already available via the web platform and will be made available to iOS and Android users in early 2021.
