The NHS App
What is the NHS App?
The NHS App provides a simple and secure way for you to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet. This is a national programme, and all GP surgeries in Somerset are connected. If you are registered with a GP in Somerset, you can start using it straight away.
- A – Z symptom checker
- Find out what to do when you need help urgently
- Book and manage appointments at your GP surgery
- Order repeat prescriptions
- Securely view your GP medical record
- Register to be an organ donor
- Choose how the NHS uses your data.
How can I get it?
You can download it for free from the Google Play Store or the Apple Store. When you register in the app, there will be a series of checks to confirm your identity. You will not have to go into your surgery to register if you have a driving license. You can also choose to log in using fingerprint recognition.
The app securely connects to information from your GP surgery. To keep your access secure, a security code will be sent to your phone each time you use the app. This feature can be disabled if you choose to.
