New NHS App Launched

The app can help you manage your healthcare wherever you are

Did you know that a new NHS App is now available to help you manage your own healthcare wherever you are?

At home or on the move, with the new app you can conveniently order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical records, manage appointments at your GP surgery, set organ donation preferences, and check symptoms.

The app has been developed by the NHS and has been designed to help people get more information about their health and care - and more control of how they use NHS services. New functions and services will also be added in the coming months. Why not download it and try it out? 

What does the NHS App do?


The NHS App allows you to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet. A desktop version is launching soon too.

You can use it wherever you are, at any time. It puts valuable information about your health and treatments at your fingertips.

You can:

  • Order repeat prescriptions
  • View your GP medical record
  • Book 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 111 Online, for advice on self-care and whether urgent help is needed
  • 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 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 license) to hand.

    If you want to learn more, visit the NHS App page on the NHS UK website.
