A regular update for professionals who are using the Notts NHS App, Personal Health and Care Record with PKB.
Patient Knows Best (PKB) and the NHS App Login single sign-on
Patients Knows Best (PKB) and the NHS App Login single sign-on has now been updated, allowing patients to claim, register and activate their PKB record. This means that once your practice has had training and is ‘live’ with PKB, all patients at your surgery will be able to claim their record by registering for PKB through the NHS App. Previously patients could only access PKB from the NHS App if they had already completed registration following an invite to register via text or email by the practice.
Registered patients can access specific ‘jump off’ services into PKB from the NHS App, for example: secure messaging, online consultations, the library of resources, appointments and care plans, with many more features coming in the following weeks and months. This means that patients will be able to sign up to both the NHS App and PKB through one registration. As other Healthcare Providers and teams start to use the PKB system, individual patient registration will be so much simpler.
For further information, questions or booking in ‘go-lives’, please feel free to visit our website or contact our dedicated email address and a member of the team will be more than happy to talk to you.
