Modern life can be busy, and keeping track of tasks can be tricky. That’s why health bosses in Herefordshire and Worcestershire are encouraging everyone to use the NHS App.
The NHS App has a few new features and easier navigation. It’s quick and easy to use and means all a patient’s vital health information is at their fingertips. Furthermore, people can use the app to register for organ donation or access NHS 111 online to get instant advice or medical help.
As well as booking appointments and ordering repeat prescriptions, people can also see their medical records, get test results and receive messages from your GP surgery.
Dr Will Taylor, Chief Medical Officer for NHS Herefordshire & Worcestershire says: “With the NHS App you can access a number of services - at a time that works for you. Most people will have downloaded the NHS App during the Covid pandemic, so the chances are you already have it on your phone.
“The NHS App has many useful applications that can help make life easier when needing to access health services. The app gives you the freedom to book appointments or arrange repeat prescriptions in your own time. And, to be able to see medical records, test results and messages from your GP all in one place means you’ll always be in control of your healthcare. I use it myself for those very reasons!”
“It doesn’t replace existing services, you can still contact your GP surgery in the usual ways… but I’d still encourage people to download and try it.”
The NHS App can be accessed by anyone aged 13 and over who’s registered with an NHS GP surgery in England.
