The NHS App is unable to connect to any online GP suppliers

According to HSJ, the NHS App which was designed to be a digital “front door” for all NHS patients is actually unable to connect with any current providers of online GP consultations.

HSJ obtained a leaked NHS Digital briefing that shows a survey of 32 online consultation suppliers such as Livi and Babylon Health; the survey found that none had the technology to integrate with the NHS App.

GPs have also been given just six months to connect to the app enabling their patients to book appointments and order repeat prescriptions digitally.
