Benefits of NHS login
Our partners will benefit from:
- using a trusted and secure identity platform
- choosing an appropriate level of user verification
- displaying a brand the public will recognise
- meeting the Identity Verification and Authentication Standard (DCB3051)
NHS login makes it easier and quicker for patients to access multiple digital health and care services, with just one email address and password. This is a trusted and secure login developed by the NHS, so patients know their health and care data is protected.
