The NHS app

The NHS have asked surgeries to only promote the NHS app as a way to view your medical records online. This is because it is much safer and secure than other service providers. The Surgery is no longer promoting other apps such as Patient Access, or myGP.

If you haven't already, please complete an online access to medical records form, and hand it into Reception. This will enable you to have your records online. You can then register for the NHS app here: https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-app/nhs-app-help-and-support/getting-started-with-the-nhs-app/
