fingertips. This means you can see it when speaking to a health and care professional, for example.

A digital front door to the NHS
The NHS App has been designed with patients and healthcare professionals to be your digital front door to the NHS.
It is quick and easy to use and we will be adding new features in the coming months.
Apps are not for everyone so the NHS App won’t replace existing services. You can still contact the practice in the usual ways if you prefer.
