Owned and run by the NHS, the NHS App is a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.  The NHS App is available on iOS and Android. Please click on this link for more information about the NHS app and help and support.

If you wish to have limited access to your medical record, and you are able to see this on the app, please ask at reception so we can action this for you.  Please note that from April 2022, patients will be able to view their full medical records via the NHS app.

If the app asks you for a “linkage key”, please contact the surgery so we can provide you with this information.
