NHS Apps Library


Trusted digital tools for patients and the public to manage and improve their health.

The NHS Apps Library moved into live service in February 2019. It provides a place for patients and the public to find trusted and safe apps and digital tools to help improve their healthcare and take more control of their treatment.

The library was launched as a beta service in April 2017, and since then it has been regularly improved to offer a wider range of products and increased functionality and accessibility.

All the apps and digital tools on the library have met standards designed by NHS Digital in areas including clinical safety, usability and security. Over time, the library will grow to cover many more health and care needs.

How to get involved

Please visit the Apps Library guidance to learn how you can get involved. The guidance provides information for developers on the eligibility criteria for assessment, how to submit health apps and digital tools and the assessment process itself.

For any organisation wanting to assess on our behalf, the pages explain what qualifications are required and how to apply to become an assessor of health apps and digital tools.

There is also information and advice for commissioners on implementing digital health solutions in their region and how the library can help.

The NHS is keen to work with all interested parties. If you require any further information, please contact
