What does the NHS App do?
You can use it wherever you are, at any time. It puts valuable information about your health and treatments at your fingertips.
- access your Covid-19 vaccine passport
- 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
- choose whether the NHS uses their data for research and planning
*GP Practices have temporarily suspended online appointment booking during the pandemic. This service will hopefully resume shortly.
