‘My Health, My Say’ NHS iPad App


My Health, My Say (2014) was a project led & funded by the Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust. The project looked at how the NHS Friends and Family Test, a key NHS feedback tool, could be made more accessible for people with learning disabilities through the use of a multimedia ipad application.

RIX Research led on development of the app, employing the RIX co-production approach of working in close collaboration with a group of people with learning disabilities as user testers and co-researchers throughout the development process.

RIX produced easy to understand animations, sounds and content for the app based on Multimedia Advocacy approaches.

The app software was provided by AbleLink Technologies in Colorado, who working in partnership with RIX adapted and further developed their existing ‘easy survey’ tool app to the unique needs of this project.
