Thank you to everyone who applied to become an NHS App ambassador. We received 692 applications from staff all over the country.
Applications are now closed.
Look out for the new faces of the NHS App - coming soon!
96% of people across England now have access to the NHS App and we are looking for around 10 NHS App Ambassadors to front our campaign promoting the app to NHS staff and patients.
Now available to download on all IOS and Android devices, the app allows patients to book appointments at their GP practice, manage repeat prescriptions, view their medical records, set organ donation preferences and much more.
Applications to find our NHS App Ambassadors are now open to NHS staff from all professions, grades and backgrounds. Whether you are a nurse, porter, doctor, or allied health professional, we want to hear from you.
What is an NHS App Ambassador?
As a face of the NHS App, you will be a passionate NHS staff member who understands how digital technology can improve care and people’s experiences of the NHS.
The NHS App is for everybody and is particularly useful for people who use NHS services regularly, such as pregnant women and people with long term health conditions. We are especially keen to hear from you if you manage your own health and care online or want to do so. Maybe you need repeat prescriptions or have regular appointments for monitoring and treatment?
We’ll be looking to our NHS App Ambassadors to promote the app with conviction and talk with confidence about its benefits.
What does an ambassador do?
You’ll feature in our promotional app photography and videos, talking about the NHS App and its benefits.
You’ll spread the word and promote the NHS App through your own networks, including family, friends, colleagues and patients. We’ll provide the tools you’ll need to do this through email, social media, networking and, perhaps, your local media.
Why get involved?
You’ll be able to:
get recognition as an official NHS App Ambassador and be featured in our promotional materials
develop your leadership and persuasion skills
access a network of passionate and technologically minded NHS colleagues
use NHS materials, including social media tools, to support your work
