Millions of people are already using the NHS App to manage their health the easy way from the comfort of their homes.

The NHS App is a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services and information on your smartphone or tablet. If you are over the age of 16 the NHS App enables you to view your GP health record to help you better understand and manage your condition, without having to phone your GP surgery. With the App you can access your consultation notes, letters and test results.

The NHS App also enables you to manage repeat prescriptions and easily change your nominated pharmacy, so you can send orders when it’s convenient for you. Each prescription ordered electronically saves GP practices three minutes of time and a patient 18 minutes, making it more convenient for people and freeing up frontline staff to do other important duties.

The App makes it easy to access your appointment information and manage your hospital appointments. You can also find out your NHS number and access NHS 111 online to get instant advice or medical help near you.

New and innovative features will continue to be developed for the NHS App to help patients access convenient and high-quality care when and where they need it.
