NHS Login allows you to sign up to the myGP app and securely connect with your GP surgery.
You’ll need a piece of photo ID such as:
- Driving license
Your ID along with a scan of your face will be verified by NHS Login to confirm your identity and unlock access to NHS online services.
How to register
If you have never registered for the myGP app before, follow the below instructions.
When you download and open the app for the first time, tap on Sign Up.
Search for your surgery and select it from the results.
Tap confirm if this is the correct surgery.
If your surgery supports NHS Login (most do now) then tap on the blue Register using NHS Login button
NHS Login will open within the app. Start the process by entering your email address and tapping the confirm button. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the registration.
What happens next?
If you have never used NHS Login before, your identity will be verified within 2 hours.
If you have used NHS Login before in another app, you will now be connected to myGP. You can go ahead and book appointments, order prescriptions, and view medical records (depending on what services are offered by your practice).
Something went wrong
Sometimes, myGP users can run into issues when signing up using NHS Login. We have collected a few here:
You have signed up to the myGP app previously with your NHS online credentials
If you have your credentials to hand, please try to sign up to the app again but do not try to use NHS Login.
If you do not have your credentials, ask your practice to reset them and issue them to you again.

You have used NHS Login before on another app and have forgotten your password
Use the forgotten password link within NHS Login to reset your password. Follow the on-screen prompts.
You are not seeing the NHS Login button when signing up
This means that your surgery is not compatible to use NHS Login at this time. Please follow the on-screen prompts to see how you can sign up to the myGP app
