The NHS App is now available.

It is a convenient smartphone app, created by NHS Digital, designed to be the only health app you’ll need in order to manage your health and wellbeing online.

As Meadowside patient, you will also be able to use it to access your hospital information, if you’ve received care at Macclesfield or Leighton Hospital.

You’ll be able to:

  • View your hospital appointments

View any appointments and see any letters you may have from Leighton or Macclesfield Hospital.

·      Book and cancel appointments

Book, view and cancel appointments at your GP surgery and your hospital clinic, if you receive care at either Macclesfield or Leighton Hospitals.

·      View your records

  • Find out how the NHS uses your data

The NHS App gives you more control over your health and care.

You can use it wherever you are, at any time of the day or night.

As it is integrated with the MyCareView Patient Portal in Cheshire East, you will be able to access your hospital information alongside your GP information; giving you more control, confidence, convenience, and consistency in your care than ever before.

Owned and run by the NHS

The app is designed and operated by the NHS in England to give you access to a range of services.

The MyCareView Patient Portal is built by UK-based healthcare software company Patients Know Best (PKB), in partnership with NHS England, and the Cheshire East Partnership (which includes local NHS organisations and Cheshire East Council).

Ask your GP surgery about their plans to introduce the NHS App with the MyCareView Patient Portal.
