New Features within the NHS App

Posted by: Katherine - Posted on:

From 30th January 2024 there are going to be two new features on the NHS app:

Waiting list information in the NHS App

While you are waiting for your hospital appointment or treatment, you can now use the NHS App to get the information you need while you wait to be seen.

A new NHS App feature has been launched for patients to view an estimated waiting time for your hospital treatment. You will know where you are on the waiting list and how long you may have to wait for treatment.

Digital prescriptions in the NHS App

You can now see and access your prescriptions electronically in the NHS App, allowing you to:

  • Easily see the details of medicines / items healthcare professionals have confirmed for you
  • Use a prescription barcode to collect your medicine if you don’t have a nominated pharmacy, without needing to collect a paper prescription.
