Patient access online via the NHS App

Patients can access their own medical record online using a secure online service.

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
  • order repeat prescriptions
  • view your GP medical record securely
  • register to be an organ donor
  • choose how the NHS uses your data

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.

Get help with the app

If you have any issues using or downloading the app, check the NHS App help and support page.
