What is an NHS login?
Besides using this Health App, NHS login allows you to access lots of different health and care websites and apps with just one set of login details. NHS login is simply a new login method for your existing Health App account with us. (You won't be switching over to the NHS App.)
What do you need to set up your NHS login account?
- In order to set up your NHS login account, you will need an email address, mobile number and photo ID.
