You can use the NHS App to check your symptoms and get instant advice, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more.
NHS App messaging is a new service which allows you to receive an in-app message where you would normally receive a message via a more traditional channel, like SMS.
It is your choice whether to receive messages in this way. In order to have this choice, please switch on NHS App notifications on your device, so that you are prompted to read the message in the app. This can be done in the NHS App or in the device settings. Notification preferences may take 24 hours to take effect.
If a message is not successfully delivered to the NHS App, you will still receive the message via another channel, such as SMS.
