How to: Add a linked child to your account

If you are the parent or guardian of a child under the age of 16, and want to add/link them to your Health App account, please follow these steps:

Step 1. Select 'Linked profiles', on the welcome screen.




Alternatively, select 'Settings' tab, near the top of the Health App or 'Settings' from the menu button (Android/iOS).




Step 2. Then select 'Linked profiles'.




Step 3. Select the 'Add new linked account' button.




Step 4. Enter your child's details and click 'Send request'.




Please note:

The Name and Date of Birth you provide must match your child's medical record, at your GP surgery.

You and your child must be registered at the same GP surgery. 

Once your request has been approved by your GP surgery, they will send you an email.

You can add more children to your account, by following the same process above.

Only your GP surgery can approve your request.

Please contact your GP surgery, if you want to check the progress of your request.
