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:
– book appointments – search for, book and cancel appointments at your GP surgery, and see details of your upcoming and past appointments
– order repeat prescriptions – see your available medicines and request a new repeat prescription
– 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
Who can use the NHS App
To use the NHS App you must be aged 13 and over and registered with a GP surgery in England.
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.
Get help with the app
If you have any issues using or downloading the app, check the NHS App help and support page.
🌟6,571 Notts people registered for the NHS App last week and became part of our NHSAppClub. Well done to everyone promoting this!
