The NHS App

The NHS App

Frome Medical Practice recommends that patients use 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.


If you need assistance with downloading and setting up the NHS App our digital health team can help.

Using the NHS App to book appointments at Frome Medical Practice 

If we have asked you to book any of the following appointments, the NHS App is the quickest and easiest way to do this: 

  • B12 injections
  • Blood tests
  • BP plus
  • Cervical screening (smear tests)
  • INR

What you can use the NHS App for

Use the NHS App to:

  • 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

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.
