NHSmail available to pharmacists, optometrists and dentists

Pharmacists, optometrists and dentists in England are encouraged to sign up to NHSmail, the secure email service for health and social care.

Provided by the Health and Social Care Information Centre and run by Vodafone, NHSmail is used by more than 600,000 health and social care staff in England and Scotland to securely transmit information and replace paper-based processes, speeding up communication, and improving patient care.

The service has recently been upgraded to allow these additional professions to quickly and easily register and activate an account.

For more information and details of who to contact to request an account, please see
