Spire Portsmouth Hospital launches new Facebook Quiz App

03 October 2013

Popular questions and myths surrounding cosmetic surgery, skin cancer and weight loss surgery feature in a brand new Facebook app launched by Spire Portsmouth Hospital.

The app, which features three separate online quizzes and the chance to win John Lewis vouchers, has been designed as a fun way to increase awareness of popular health issues.

Hospital Director, Louise Sullivan, said that Spire Portsmouth has taken the social route to increase people’s knowledge of some of the most common areas of healthcare.

“We are bombarded by information, statistics and myths in these key areas so what we want to do is focus on important key areas of knowledge,’’ said Louise. “The questions we have included give users a fun way to learn and win.’’

She said skin cancer has been included in the online quizzes as summer is a high profile time for this disease to be in the spotlight. “We want people to know the dangers of skin cancer, how they can help avoid the disease and what areas of the body are most likely to be affected.’’

Cosmetic surgery and weight loss also feature as key areas for patient understanding. “It’s important for patients looking at any kind of treatment to have as much information as possible and our quizzes include the type of questions patients ask us at open evenings and when they meet our specialists.’’

The Facebook quizzes are online at www.facebook.com/SpirePortsmouthHospital
