Providers of digital health and care services can now integrate NHS login into their platforms through the self-service toolkit, launched by NHS Digital.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock claims the investment will save thousands of hours in staff login time and ease administrative burdens.
NHS Login can now be used to access the NHS eReferral service, Patient Access and a host of other digital healthcare service via a single sign-on system.

NHS login is a single identity verification system for the health service to help make it easier for people to access their health information.
The NHS App that launched at the end of December is a prestige project on the road to NHS digitisation championed by first Jeremy Hunt and now by Matt Hancock. But it’s just lost two of its key leaders and faces serious technical challenges if it is to become the default digital gateway for patients. Digital Health editor Jon Hoeksma reports.
Adam Lewis from NHS Digital also confirmed the NHS App will be rolled out nationwide on a region by region basis from December.
