NHS App with MyCareView

The NHS App with MyCareView is now available for everyone in Cheshire East, providing you with access to:

  • your GP information
  • your hospital information from Macclesfield or Leighton Hospital

All of this and more is available to you now through the convenience of your smartphone.

The NHS App is created by NHS Digital, and is the only health app you’ll need in order to manage your health and wellbeing online. Other online health services are available.

The NHS App is not the same as the NHS COVID-19 App which is for contract tracing  and available to download in England and Wales

NHS App Wayfinder with MyCareView – now live at East Cheshire NHS Trust! 

We have been working with NHS England and Patients Know Best to improve visibility and access to your hospital appointments, information and support through NHS App and MyCareView.   

A new feature is available to patients at East Cheshire NHS Trust, who can now access their hospital appointment information within NHS App itself. 

How does it work and how can I see my hospital appointments 

Within the NHS App Appointments section is a new feature – called Referrals, hospital and other appointments. Your East Cheshire NHS Trust appointments will be listed here once you have chosen to link NHS App and Patients Know Best.   

To see this new feature in NHS App you will also need to be registered with a GP practice in East Cheshire. Please see the following questions and answers page for details on which practices in Cheshire have MyCareView available in NHS App.  

Access your MyCareView account on your desktop

As well as seeing your hospital information on the NHS App, you can also view it separately through your MyCareView account on a desktop; and get access to a range of further features such as:

  • sharing your care record with family, friends, or care professionals
  • integrating it with your favourite health or fitness tracking device
