How you can use the NHS App to manage your healthcare, easier

Over two million people across England have downloaded the NHS App, and use it as a 'single pane of glass' to manage their healthcare and access NHS Services. 

At this stage, you will probably not be able to view your Vaccination status as most people cannot yet view their detailed care record [DCR]. This will be made visible shortly by NHS Digital upgrading the App. 


Please do not contact your GP Practice to ask about this, for the moment. They do not have the people to activate every patient one-by-one to view vaccinations. 

COVID19 Vaccine passports will be added to the NHS App shortly, meanwhile, why not get all your family ready by downloading and registering on the NHS App. [click here to view]

You can also use the NHS App to:

  • Manage your first outpatient appointment, if your GP has referred you to hospital

  • Manage how your medical records are shared by the NHS

  • Access to health advice on NHS.UK

  • Access to urgent care via 111 Online

And, if your GP surgery has turned on these features for your NHS App account, you can:

  • Access your latest lab test results

  • View your medical record [Detailed Care Record - DCR]

  • View the documents scanned onto your GP record

Below are some videos explaining more about the NHS App [and GP Online], with some feedback from patients about how the NHS App has helped them manage their health.
