Beyond that, myGP allows you easy access to other services that your GP practice can provide, ranging from ordering repeat prescriptions and accessing your medical records through to having a video consultation with your GP.

With 29 million people in England alone taking repeat medications, myGP is committed to improving patient access to medicines while reducing the cost and the burden on the NHS.
By allowing you to manage your medicines through myGP, you are much more likely to remember to take them as instructed, enabling the medication to work at its optimum level – helping you and your Dr to best manage your condition and medication.
You may notice a number of new services appearing in myGP, these have been carefully selected to help you best manage your health.
While some services can’t be fully met online, myGP aims to reduce waiting times and allow quicker access to NHS commissioned services through accurate signposts, enabling you to manage your health.
myGP simplifies access to a range of preventative, diagnostics and educational services funded by the NHS.
If your GP surgery or local NHS organisation has put these services on myGP, then the app will notify you of the availability of the service and, in many cases, allow you to book an appointment there and then.
