We use thoughtful technology to help you through cancer
Vinehealth is a mobile app to support cancer patients and their loved ones through treatment by allowing them to really easily track, understand, and self-manage their care.
The Vinehealth app supports people to understand their symptoms and side effects, and helps them to communicate these to their care team. The app also delivers reminders about medications and appointments and provides reliable, up-to-date information on how to manage treatment and lifestyle issues.
Co-developed with hundreds of patients, as well as with NHS oncologists, Vinehealth also connects patients to their clinical team, helping them to feel confident and in control, and supporting people with cancer to find their new normal.
The Vinehealth app has been featured as a helpful service by Macmillan Cancer Support for anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer and is receiving treatment.
We help you to stay on track with your medication and appointment schedule, providing reminders and encouraging you to add notes, so that you feel more confident and in control of your treatment. My Care allows you to update your schedule, working as a digital journal to refer back to whenever you need.
By logging your experience with Vinehealth, your care team can get a deeper understanding of your experience with cancer, and take the necessary steps to ensure that you are receiving the most relevant care. Each Log option will help provide a holistic view of your current care, and will help to provide key indicators on how your treatment can be tailored to you.
Our Articles Library
Within the app you can find access to an extensive library of articles and information from a vast range of charity and clinical partners. This information is regularly reviewed and updated, to make sure that we can collate the most up to date knowledge based designed to help you understand and manage your care. Whether you’re looking for information on side-effect management, nutrition, what to expect from your treatments, or more, visiting our articles library can help.

Our Reports feature lets you review all your activity and symptoms in one place - making it that bit easier to talk with your care team about how you’ve been doing. Remember, logging daily will make your reports even more comprehensive.
“I find the user interface is so quick and simple that to ‘log’ for the day only takes a minute. I’ve given up with similar apps before because the daily logging takes too long.”
“I am using the app everyday. I like to see my progress and any changes... [and] show my Oncology Consultant & Nurse as an indicator for side effects and severity.”
"Thank you again I've recommended this to so many people and my oncologist looked online at it and said it's brilliant, high praise indeed."
“This is a great app... I’ve used health apps with daily logging before but it’s felt like a chore... enables me to log daily symptoms in a few ‘clicks’...my palliative care consultant can adjust my medication as required based on this...easy to set up prescribed medication...I’m on 10+ pills a day, and it’s reminded me when I’ve forgotten a few times! There are also useful articles to browse on many aspects of living with cancer. I highly recommend using this app...”
"When I had chemo, I was desperate for an app to help me keep track of all my symptoms. When treatment finished, recovery was hard and it was difficult to remember how far I had come when I was having a bad day. I wish Vinehealth was around when I was diagnosed. It would have made it so easy to keep track of things, and make sure that my oncologist was getting accurate info instead of relying on my chemo-brain." - Dr Liz O'Riordan

"Having had reports like those in the app shared with me before the phone call with a patient would have been very useful indeed – especially during COVID". - Oncologist
