NHS Apps Library

Guidance for health app developers, commissioners and assessors to get trusted digital tools assessed and published on the NHS Apps Library.

Trusted and safe

The NHS Apps Library helps users to find trusted health and wellbeing apps that have been assessed to be clinically safe and secure to use.

These products can help to ensure that people are better able to take an active role in managing their own mental and physical health.

All products on the library have met standards sourced by NHS Digital, including evidence of clinical safety, security and technical stability.

Changes to how we assess apps and tools

The way apps and digital tools are assessed for use by the NHS is changing.

From 1 October 2020, NHSX will take over responsibility for the assessment process. NHSX will publish details of the changes on their website in the near future.
