The NHS App

Features of the NHS App

The NHS App enables people to:

  • check their symptoms using the health A-Z on the NHS website 
  • Covid vaccination pass
  • find out what to do when they need help urgently using NHS 111 online
  • register as an organ donor
  • choose whether the NHS uses their data for research and planning

If their GP practice is connected to the app, they can register and verify their identity so they can:

  • book and manage appointments at their GP practice
  • order their repeat prescriptions
  • view their GP medical record securely

The NHS App is available for Android and Apple iOS mobile devices only. It's not possible to download the app to your computer.

We understand that some people:

  • do not have a smartphone or tablet
  • do not feel confident using apps
  • have specific accessibility needs which means they cannot use apps

Missing or incorrect COVID-19 vaccination data on your NHS Covid pass?

If you believe you have missing or incorrect COVID-19 vaccination data on your NHS app or on your GP record, please call 119 and ask the agent to make a referral to the Vaccine Data Resolution Service (VDRS).

The service has been set up to resolve missing or incorrect vaccination records for people vaccinated in England who have a current NHS number and are registered with a GP practice in England.

The VDRS team will call you back within five working days to discuss your records.
