Hello from your care team

Welcome to Medopad. Your care team has chosen this mobile app to help you keep track of your health and optimise your care. Let’s help you get started on this journey.

What is ‘Medopad’ ?

Medopad is a mobile app for patients like you. It tracks your health and activity at home, and shows your care team your progress.

Who has access to my data ?

Your care team will be given access to your data when you make your Medopad account. Your care team can access your data at any time through their own portal. You can choose who your data is shared with at any time in the app.

When to use Medopad ?

Medopad will be added to your phone, so it’s important you keep it with you during the day. Your care team has chosen the activities for you (e.g. blood pressure) and it’s important you complete them as prescribed.

Hello and welcome from all the team at the skeletal muscle channelopathy clinic. Information that you provide here will help us to monitor your condition and work with you to make choices about your treatment.

We may ask you to provide information whenever your treatment is altered but you can also do this yourself if you feel there has been a change in your condition.
