You can find out more about the NHS App, how to download it and get support here (https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-app/).

If you’re a patient at our practice you can use the new NHS App, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.
You can still contact the practice by phone or in person, this is just another option, which other patients have found is more convenient and saves them time. More information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services are available at www.nhs.uk/gponlineservices
Your NHS Login
Your NHS account allows you to access your services through the NHS App or website. It also allows you to access authorised apps such as Airmid.
To have an NHS account, you must be aged 13 or over and registered with an NHS GP surgery in England or the Isle of Man.
You can find out more about how to set up your NHS login, you can visit the NHS website: How to set up NHS login
You may find it easier to have an app on your phone to access your account but you don’t have to. If you prefer, you can access your NHS account online: Log in – NHS App Online (service.nhs.uk)
If you would like to benefit from online services and prefer to use an app, you can use the Airmid app. Airmid is the patient-facing app for the provider of our clinical system. If you don’t want to use an app you can still access SystmOnline.
Through the Airmid app you can:
Access your complete medical record and contribute to it using information from medical devices and wearables, Apple Health and Google Fit.
- Consultation notes
- Medication History
- Vaccination History
- Allergy/Drug Sensitivities
- Procedure History
- Correspondence e.g. Referral/Discharge letters
- Pathology/Radiology reports
- Health data from your personal device
Use it to book and manage your appointments:
- View all upcoming appointments
- Add appointment reminders to your calendar, so you don’t miss an appointment
- Airmid has video consultations built-in, so you can be consulted straight from the app
Use it to manage your medication better:
- Request medication and re-order your repeat medication directly through Airmid
- Airmid supports the Electronic Prescription Service and can produce barcodes directly in the app ready for scanning at the Pharmacy for medication collection
- Update your nominated pharmacy. Integrated maps show you how to get to there too
Non-urgent advice: Please note
To use the Airmid app, you must set up your NHS log-in.
This is the same login as you would use for the NHS App. For help and guidance on how to do this, please visit the NHS website.
