What to expect from NHS App messages
We will only send you a message if we need to contact you, for example if we have an update about your care.
We may continue to send you some information by SMS (text) message (if you have opted in) while we transition to using the NHS App Messaging Service.
If you do not want to receive messages from the NHS App Messaging Service

How to check if you have a message
You will receive messages here, in ‘View messages from your GP surgery and other NHS Services.’
