What is NHS App?
NHS App. Your NHS account, which is owned and operated by the NHS, is a convenient and safe way to access a variety of NHS services online.
The NHS App is an easy and secure method for users to use their smartphone or tablet to access a variety of NHS services.
The History of NHS App
The NHS App allows patients in England to arrange appointments with their doctors, obtain repeat medications, and view their medical records. NHS Digital and NHS England collaborated to create the app, which has been available since late 2018.
For practices that employ eConsult, online consultation is now available within the NHS App, and Substrakt's Patient Pack will be available soon.
This allows patients to email non-urgent questions to their doctors' offices, who can respond via the clinical system. A secure messaging facility is provided by the EMIS and TPP clinical systems. This feature is presently used by around 900 practices. If their practice employs EMIS or TPP, and the capability has been enabled in their clinical system, patients can now send and receive encrypted messages through the NHS App. Microtest and Vision clinical systems do not yet allow secure texting.
Patients can use the app to request repeat medications. Prescriptions will be sent to a patient's designated pharmacy if they have one; if not, they will be sent to the practice to be picked up. Although this does not apply to dispensing practices or dispensing appliance contractors, patients can now set or alter a nomination through the NHS App.
