Number of NHS App users more than double in three months
The number of patients using the NHS App has more than doubled since chief nurse Ruth May announced the NHS App Ambassadors scheme in early September.
The number of NHS App registered users now stands at over 200,000 compared with 91,000 at the beginning of September. More people than ever before booked NHS appointments digitally choosing to use this route rather than calling their local surgery. In September there were 1.4m GP online service appointment transactions.
