The NHS App
The new, simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.
What the NHS App does
Use the NHS App to:
- Check your symptoms
- Find out what to do when you need help urgently
- Book and manage appointments at your GP surgery (temporarily suspended during Covid-19 pandemic)
- Order repeat prescriptions
- View your GP medical record securely (including test results)
- Register to be an organ donor
- Choose how the NHS uses your data
Registering for the NHS App
You can register through your mobile phone, once you have downloaded the app.
Alternatively, you can ask the surgery for a letter containing your registration details for the GP online services. In order for reception to supply you with this letter you must bring photo ID (passport, driver's licence, freedom pass) upon collection. This letter will contain registration details for you to set up an NHS login, which you can then use to access the NHS App.
For furher information please visit the NHS App support page.
Connecting GP surgeries to the NHS App
Patients at 95% of GP surgeries in England can now use all the features of the NHS App.
You can check if your GP surgery is connected when you open the app for the first time. If it's not, you can register your email address, and we'll notify you when they go live.
If your GP surgery is not connected, you can still download the app and use it to check your symptoms and find out what to do when you need help urgently.
Keeping your data secure
When your surgery is connected, and you register in the app, we'll carry out checks to confirm your identity. The app will then securely connect to information from your GP surgery. To keep your access secure, we'll send a security code to your phone each time you use the app.
