The NHS App
Owned and run by the NHS, the NHS App is a 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:
get advice about coronavirus – get information about coronavirus and find out what to do if you think you have it
order repeat prescriptions - see your available medicines, request a new repeat prescription and choose a pharmacy for your prescriptions to be sent to
book appointments - search for, book and cancel appointments at your GP surgery, and see details of your upcoming and past appointments
check your symptoms - search trusted NHS information and advice on hundreds of conditions and treatments, and get instant advice or medical help near you
view your medical record - securely access your GP medical record, to see information like your allergies and your current and past medicines
register your organ donation decision - choose to donate some or all of your organs and check your registered decision
find out how the NHS uses your data - choose if data from your health records is shared for research and planning
Other services in the NHS App
If your GP surgery or hospital offers other services in the NHS App, you may be able to:
message your GP surgery, doctor or health professional online
consult a GP or health professional through an online form and get a reply
access health services on behalf of someone you care for
view your hospital and other healthcare appointments
view useful links your doctor or health professional has shared with you
Keeping your data secure
After you download the app, you will need to set up an NHS login and prove who you are. The app then securely connects to information from your GP surgery.
If your device supports fingerprint detection or facial recognition, you can use it to log in to the NHS App each time, instead of using a password and security code.
