Features that you can use as a patient in Doncaster

The NHS App is being gradually rolled out across England now.

You can check if your GP surgery is connected when you open the app for the first time. If it isn’t, you can register your email address and you will receive a notification when they go live.

If your surgery isn’t connected you can still download the app and use it to check your symptoms and find out what to do when you need help urgently.

We expect most surgeries in Doncaster to be connected by 1 July 2019.

Keeping your data secure

When your surgery is connected, and you register in the app, NHS Digital will carry out a series of checks to confirm your identity. The app will then securely connect to information from your GP surgery.

To keep your access secure, the system will send a security code to your phone each time you use the app.

Get help with the app

If you have any issues using or downloading the app, check the NHS App help and support page.

The Doncaster Choose Well App will continue to be used until further notice.
