Patients start testing the new NHS app

Patients at a number of practices across England have begun testing the new NHS app.

The NHS App provides simple and secure access to a range of healthcare services on a smartphone or tablet. Developed by NHS Digital and NHS England, the app will enable many patients to register without attending the practice, reducing administrative burden on reception staff. Feedback from patients and practice staff will be used to help improve the app before it is rolled out to patients across England from December 2018.
