ABOUT THE NHS APP

The NHS App

The Connaught Square Practice is encouraging everyone to sign up for the NHS App – a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on a smartphone or tablet.

You can use the NHS App to:

  • book GP  appointments
  • order repeat prescriptions
  • view your hospital medical record, including hospital appointments, medications, investigations and results
  • check your symptoms

An additional feature available to our patients along with the NHS App is access to your hospital record (Personal Health Record), using a system called Patients Know Best (PKB).

Through your PKB record, you will be able to view information being sent to you from other NHS organisations such as hospitals should you be under their care.

You may already have access to your GP record via SystmOne online access: this will be unaffected and also can also be accessed through the NHS App. However, it will not contain all the additional information that PKB will be able to receive from other health and care organisations.
