Connecting GP surgeries to the NHS App
Patients at 95% of GP surgeries in England can now use all the features of the NHS App.
You can check if your GP surgery is connected when you open the app for the first time. If it's not, you can register your email address, and we'll notify you when they go live.
If your GP surgery is not connected, you can still download the app and use it to check your symptoms and find out what to do when you need help urgently.
Keeping your data secure
When your surgery is connected, and you register in the app, we'll carry out checks to confirm your identity. The app will then securely connect to information from your GP surgery. To keep your access secure, we'll send a security code to your phone each time you use the app.
Using linked profiles to access services for someone else
As a parent, family member or carer, you may be able to access services for someone else using linked profiles. This is also sometimes called having proxy access. It needs to be set up by a GP surgery where you and the other person are both registered. You can then access the linked profile by using the NHS App or by logging in through the NHS website.
Please contact your practice through the link to Patchs to ask for proxy access to be setup for you.
