All patients in England aged 13 and over will be able to use the NHS App from 3 February, when Vision and Microtest GP systems are connected.
If your practice uses the EMIS system, proxy access is also now available. It allows parents, family members and carers to access health services on behalf of others, such as children, dependants and relatives. Both patients must be registered at your practice.
For further information and to help you answer patients’ questions, please visit the NHS App news page. This provides updates and resources to help you brief staff and get involved.
Please find below the ‘Microtest letter’ and ‘Vision letter’ to any practices that use the relevant system.
