Organ donation registration
During the past four months, 3,160,253 repeat prescriptions were ordered and 268,063 GP appointments were booked via the app. 153,557 people have also used it to manage their organ donation decision.
Melissa Ruscoe, Programme Head at NHS Digital, said: “We are pleased to see such a massive uptake in people managing their healthcare needs digitally throughout the coronavirus pandemic, with around half of people in England now able to access digital healthcare services through NHS login.
“Through the services integrated with NHS login people can book GP appointments, order lateral flow tests, register their organ donation preferences, and much more.
“This helps free up valuable time for GP practice staff and provides a simple and efficient way for people to take control of their healthcare and access services easily and securely.”
