About the NHS App

The NHS App gives you a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services. Download the NHS App on your smartphone or tablet via the Google play or App store. You can also access the same services in a web browser by logging in through the NHS website.

You must be aged 13 or over to use the NHS App. You also need to be registered with a GP surgery in England or the Isle of Man. Find out more about who can use the NHS App.

What you can do with the NHS App

You need to prove who you are to get full access to the NHS App. With full access you can:

  • order repeat prescriptions and nominate a pharmacy where you would like to collect them
  • book and manage appointments
  • view your GP health record to see information like your allergies and medicines (if your GP has given you access to your detailed medical record, you can also see information like test results)
  • book and manage COVID-19 vaccinations
  • register your organ donation decision
  • choose how the NHS uses your data
  • view your NHS number (find out what your NHS number is)
  • use NHS 111 online to answer questions and get instant advice or medical help near you

Our registered patients can now access a variety of services online without having to phone or visit the surgery. Sign up now to GP online services and you will be able to access services using a website or app

The Patient Responsibility

You understand that it is your responsibility to keep your contact details updated and that you are responsible for the safety and security of your personal registration details for online services. You also understand that you can withdraw consent at any time by simply notifying the Practice in writing.

  • Where access is granted to your registration details such as PIN, Practice ID, Access ID and CHI number will be sent via post, text or given in person.
  • The Email address must be specific to the person making the request. It cannot be a shared account.
  • Patient with a history of non-attendance at pre-booked appointments without cancelling will not normally be granted access to online appointment booking.
  • Online appointments booked are to be cancelled by the patient as soon as it is determined it is no longer required.
  • The Practice will not allow misuse of the online system and will monitor usage by individual patients. Where it is considered that a patient is misusing the system or is acting in a way detrimental a warning letter will be issued. Where the situation does not improve, or recurs, access will be removed permanently and without further notice at the discretion of the Partners. This will not affect your registration with the Practice.
  • On approval request for online access you will be given access and instructions.
  • Requests for reissue of access log-in details will be sent via post or text to the patients registered address, mobile number, or in person.
  • The status of repeat prescriptions requests should be checked online to confirm they have been prescribed before collecting any medications from the Pharmacy.
