First GP appointment booking app

The UK’s first GP appointment booking app enables patients to book appointments with their doctor directly from their smartphone.

The Patient Access Mobile app from Patient.co.uk will also enable patients to order repeat prescriptions, securely message their practice and update personal details such as change of address.


Patient.co.uk is owned and operated by EMIS – a supplier of healthcare software and related services to GP practices. The EMIS system enables the app to connect directly with practices.

The app is one of the first to feature in the NHS Commissioning Board’s new Health Apps Library - a collection of recommended online tools designed to improve the health and wellbeing of the nation.
