New NHS App features for hospital appointments

New features in the NHS App are set to improve patient experience and support elective care recovery, while at the same time help reduce pressure on the NHS.

The updates will give patients more direct control over their care, including management of hospital appointments. Patients will be able to see all appointments and referrals in one place in the NHS App, as well as book, change and cancel hospital appointments.

The features are currently available across 28 acute trusts in England, with more expected to join in the next few months.

The Accelerated Capability Environment (ACE) has developed the new features.
