How to...

Find my NHS Number

This number is unique to you and is used as an identifier in the National Health Service. It will be shown on any hospital correspondence along with your hospital number.

When you register with a Doctor for the first time you will receive a medical card/letter showing the name of the Doctor and your NHS number. It is important that you keep this information safe.

The NHS number is now recognised as the national patient identifier and will be used by all authorised NHS staff. It would therefore be to your benefit as a patient to make a note of this and use it as an identifier when contacting any NHS organisation. This will increase both security and safety in respect of confidential medical records.

If you misplace this information your registered GP can tell you your NHS number.  You will be asked a number of security questions before this information can be given.
