You know what would be really useful? Translation. If I reside to work in a country of the EU but I don't speak the language this app should provide me with the translated instructions. Right now it just links me to the official forms. The EU has the budget to translate these at least into English if not translate all the forms into all the EU languages. Otherwise this app is just a collection of links. Another useful feature would be to just have the card virtually in the app since these cards don't have anything special than the information printed on them. I really like the initiative though. I hope you take the constructive criticism well.
Unfortunately I didn't realise our cards were no longer valid. Easy to install and complete the online form for renewal of card. Unfortunately I am travelling tomorrow and the card will not be here, but through the app I found the phone number if I require the information on our EHIC application emailed to the health care provider without having the card available. Thanks
It's the only app out there relating to the card, but doesn't actually store the card info. I was sent here when I was looking to get a new card and from here, we get sent back to another website. The moment you are surprised that the EU finally started to go digital and then really get disappointed, cause obviously they didn't :-(
I found the fact that the NHS had an app providing useful contact details per country useful and a sign of progress. It's a shame an image of the card can't be uploaded or that the reminder facility only seems to allow you to set an alarm for the date of expiry. This may be user error or an oversight but happy to have the information to hand whatever.
Can't see the point of this app. It's only functionality is to set a reminder that my card will need to be renewed in 5 years time. Cannot store card details so need to carry card, which is in a pocket of my phone case, no point in clogging up phone with a particularly pointless app.
Whats the point Yes there is some useful info but nothing that google wouldn't find on the net. Some functionality to make it useful is essential. A map to show the closest clinic or individual card details in case our card gets lost for example
Updated information for all the 32 countries in all languages, added information on online applications for the EHIC and/or lists of doctors and hospitals where available.
