Take control of your health – download the NHS App today

Requesting an appointment or ordering a repeat prescription should be quick, easy and simple. That’s why the NHS App has been designed with input from patients like you to make sure it’s easier than ever before to access your health information and manage your healthcare.

The NHS App gives you control over your healthcare. Want to jump the phone queue and request an appointment in minutes? The NHS App does that. Want to order a repeat prescription without having to contact your GP? The NHS App does that too.

Whether you’re at home or on the go, you can order repeat prescriptions, access your own medical records, manage your appointments and check your symptoms – from your phone, tablet, computer or laptop at a time suitable for you.

Take control of your health – download the NHS App today.

Why should I download the app?

The NHS App lets you take control of your healthcare. You can use it anywhere, at any time. You can access these services through the NHS App:

  • order repeat prescriptions
  • view your GP medical record
  • request and cancel appointments at your GP surgery
  • register for organ donation and change your donation preferences
  • use the symptoms checker, including an A to Z of conditions and treatment advice from the NHS website
  • access advice on self-care and understand whether urgent help is needed
  • contact your GP surgery or query anything that concerns you via an online form
  • access NHS services on behalf of somebody else (for example, for parents, family members or carers)

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 and medical 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 licence) to hand.
