  • What is a Deapp Licence?
    A Deapp Licence gives hospital sites acess to many perks of Deapp Education. If you are not a healthcare professinoal in an NHS hospital you dont need to worry about this! Hopsital sites who want to get free handbooks for all their newly diagnosed patients, free app downloads for patients and access to the patient management system within the Deapp app will want to sign up to a Deapp Licence. Contact for more information.
  • We already have Deapp resources, do we need a Deapp Licence?
    It is not a requirement for hospital sites to get a Deapp Licence, you can continue to use your amazing Deapp resources as much as you like. However the Deapp team cannot offer you the same level of support or give out free handbooks to your patients. You or your patients will need to purchase the handbook and the full Deapp app separately if you wish to use them. The patient management system on the 'backend' of the app will not be accessible to sites, meaning you cannot track your patients or sign them off as competent when using the education.

  • I am looking to bring Deapp to my country....
    Great! Deapp is designed for the UK NHS healthcare system, so it will need some tweaks and some research before we can get it running in your country. We are setting up pilots on countries around the world to analyse its potential impact within different regions and publishing the data at international conferences once it is complete. Get involved and lets collaborate! Contact to learn more about setting up a research pilot in your hospital.
