Why Update GGC Medicines App?

When my GGC Medicines App tells me to update should I listen?

Every app seems to want to update regularly, and they nag with notifications until you give in and update. Update notifications can seem like an inconvenience especially while you’re busy, but keeping your GGC Medicines App updated is important for a variety of reasons.
