What is the NHS login?
The NHS login is a single, secure login that enables you to swiftly access health and social care apps and websites wherever you see the NHS login button.
This is most commonly used to access the NHS app on a computer or mobile phone, but is also used by a number of other healthcare providers as a way of securely accessing their services.
Sapphire Clinics now offers patients in England the opportunity to login to the Sapphire webapp using the NHS login. For existing and new patients there will always be the option to continue to use a standard login. However, those who chose to opt-in to using the NHS login, this can bring additional benefits.
How does the NHS login benefit Sapphire patients?

Keeping your GP surgery and Sapphire Clinics up-to-date with information on your care ensures that you are receiving the best quality of care possible.
