Do you know how to find your NHS number?

You don’t need to know your NHS number or have one to receive care, but it helps match your details to your health records. Most of us won’t know our NHS number off by heart, because we rarely need to use it. However, with COVID vaccinations at the forefront, it’s important we have this information to hand.

Usually you would find it by either contacting your GP or checking NHS documents and letters you’ve received, such prescriptions, test results, hospital referral letters and appointment letters. You can also find your NHS number online by logging into the NHS App or some GP online services.

There is also a useful online service for anyone living in England who has forgotten or doesn’t know their NHS number. You can also use this service on someone else’s behalf.
