NHS App Posted on 4 Dec 2019

The app is to provide a simple and secure way for people to access a range of NHS services on their smartphone.

Some of the benefits of the App to patients are:

  • 24-hour access from anywhere
  • time saved rather than trying to get through on the phone
  • more control over when they book appointments
  • ability to cancel more easily if they need to
  • repeat prescriptions can be easily ordered
  • NHS login means in most cases they don't have to come in to the practice to get access
  • as more patients use the app, phone lines and reception staff should have greater capacity for those unable to use it
  • access to information about their medications, conditions and treatments wherever they are
