The NHS App




Access to a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.

To have an NHS account, you must be aged 13 or over and registered within NHS GP surgery in England or the Isle of Man.

Full access to your NHS account is available when a photo ID is provided to your GP surgery in person. Please fill in Application for online access to my medical records. The form is available at the surgery reception.

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.
