The NHS App

The basic functionality of the NHS App enables people to immediately:

If patients register and prove who they are on the NHS App they can:

Patients can request additional services through their GP to:

  • view their GP health record securely
  • access health services on behalf of someone they care for

In some GP practices, depending on which systems are in use, people can also:

  • message their GP surgery, doctor or health professional online
  • consult a GP or health professional through an online form and get a reply
  • view useful links their doctor or health professional has shared with them

All GP practices in England are connected to the NHS App. This means that anyone aged 13 and over and registered with a GP practice in England can use it.

People in England can also access their vaccination status via the NHS App, through or by requesting a letter from 119 (COVID-19 vaccination service).
