What is the NHS App? 

With the NHS App you can: 

  • order repeat prescriptions - request repeat prescriptions and change your nominated pharmacy 
  • book appointments - book, cancel and amend appointments
  • check your symptoms - get instant NHS advice or medical help near you
  • view your medical record - securely access your GP medical record, to view all test results, consultations and past medication
  • register your organ donation decision 
  • share proof of your COVID-19 status
  • view your COVID-19 vaccine record 

This short video gives you a brief insight into what the NHS App is and how you can use it. 


How to access the NHS App? 

If you have a smartphone or a tablet, you can now download the NHS 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.
