Switch from EMIS Patient Access, or another App, to the NHS App

EMIS Patient Access has a loyal following and has been around a long time. However, the NHS is focusing on adding more patient services to the NHS App and using it, and NHS Login, as a single digital platform for patients to access local and national services going forwards.
