Try the NHS App
If you’re a patient at our practice you can now use the new NHS App, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet. You can use the NHS App to get health advice, get your book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP health record and more. If you already use Patient Access you can continue to use it. You can use the NHS App as well.
The app has been developed by the NHS and has been designed to help people get more information about their health and care - and more control of how they use NHS services. New functions and services will also be added in the coming months. Why not download it and try it out?
What does the NHS App do?
The NHS App allows you to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet. A desktop version is launching soon too. You can use it wherever you are, at any time. It puts valuable information about your health and treatments at your fingertips. You can:
- check your symptoms
- book and manage appointments at your GP surgery
- order repeat prescriptions
- view your GP medical record
- get your NHS COVID pass
- register to be an organ donor
- find advice on self-care and whether urgent help is needed
- choose how the NHS uses your data
Is my information safe?
Just like a banking app, your identity will be carefully checked during the simple registration process. The app has been designed, built and tested so that your personal information is always safe and secure.
How to register through the NHS App
Download the app from your mobile device’s app store and follow the easy step-by-step registration instructions. It will help if you know your NHS number (though this isn’t essential), and you will need to have a form of ID (passport or driving license) to hand.
If you want to learn more, visit the NHS App page on the NHS UK website.
