The My NHS Interface

By using the phone’s GPS and Bing Maps, you can find addresses of and directions to your local GP, dentist or hospital, and it also uses the Windows Phone Live Tile interface to good effect: you can pin contact details of local services to the home screen as well as have NHS Choices news appear on the Tile.

Available immediately, it’s a free download from the Windows Phone MarketPlace.
