Recieve Messages through the NHS App
Messages sent by the practice that would normally be sent via SMS can be sent securely to the NHS app. If you have the NHS app and turn on notifications, any messages sent by the GP practice will be sent to your app first. If you don't read the message within a set number of days, it will then be forwarded to your phone as a text as per normal.
Messages sent to your app are secure, and allows you to reliably read any notification the practice sends, such as reminders for routine checkups and tests.
