Consumers in favour of government regulation of health apps: survey

A small survey of health consumers has found that the majority think the government should have a role in regulating and reviewing health and wellbeing apps, or they should fund another organisation to do it.

The survey, of 260 health consumers carried out by the Consumers Health Forum, also found that GPs, pharmacists and other health professionals were them most trusted source of advice about apps, well above the app stores, Google, online peer groups or friends.
