You can now view your approved prescriptions on the NHS app!

The NHS app has had a brilliant new redesign, and with it, lots of more great features to help improve your patient experience!

Most of our patients order their repeat medication through the NHS app with their smartphone, tablet, laptops and computers. Now, you can do even more, including:

  • view which medications have been prescribed
  • the type of prescription (repeat or one-off)
  • who prescribed your medication

For patients who do not have a nominated pharmacy, gone are the days for paper tokens! With the NHS app, you’ll be able to generate a barcode for your prescription and go to any pharmacy in England with it to collect your medication, making it quicker and easier for you.

Vin Diwakar, national director for transformation at NHS England, said: “Giving all patients in England direct access to prescription information through the app means they’ll know when their prescription is issued and avoid delays in collection.

“The prescription service is the latest in a number of services we’re adding to the NHS App to provide better care for patients. I’d encourage anyone who hasn’t used the NHS App for a while, or who has never downloaded it, to tap the app and see what it has to offer.”
