WaitLess is a smartphone app that has been designed to help you to get the right treatment – fast.
WaitLess uses real-time updates and geo-location technology, to give you current waiting times at all of our A&E and minor injuries units in east Kent – drawn from the official NHS system.
This information is combined with up-to-the-minute travel time information, giving a ranking of the best places to aim for if you have a minor injury.
Currently the app provides waiting times at:
- William Harvey Hospital, Ashford
- Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital, Margate
- Kent and Canterbury Hospital, Canterbury
- Buckland Hospital, Dover
- Faversham Medical Practice MIU
- Estuary View, Whitstable
- Royal Victoria Hospital, Folkestone
- Victoria Hospital, Deal.
We hope to be able to extend the service to other areas soon.
This is the first app of this kind in the UK – other apps use waiting time information but this is the first to combine with travel times, which we know can be unpredictable in Kent!
So if you’ve got a minor injury, don’t just head to the nearest A&E. Check the app first and WaitLess!
The WaitLess app has been developed by Transforming Systems and is free to download.
