What is an NHS login?

NHS login is a single, secure login that enables you to swiftly access health and social care apps and websites wherever you see the NHS login button.

How do I set it up?

Click the “Continue with NHS login” button. You will then be taken to the NHS website where you will need to complete some details and prove your identity.

You will be asked for your NHS number, if you do not know it, you can look it up here.

You will also be asked to confirm your ID by submitting a photograph of your ID and recording a short video clip so that your face can be matched. The accepted types of photo ID are:

  • Passport

  • UK driving licence (full or provisional)

  • UK residence card or biometric residence permit

  • European driving licence (full)

  • European national identity card
