How can I find out my NHS Number?

Your NHS number is a unique 10 digit number that is allocated to you when you are born or when you first access NHS services. It helps healthcare staff and service providers identify you correctly and match your detasil to your health records.

A service is available on the NHS.UK website to receive a reminder of your NHS number.

You should also be able to find your NHS Number on any letter or document you have received from the NHS, including prescriptions, test results, and hospital referral or appointment letters.

If you cannot find your NHS Number in these ways, if you are a registered patient, you can contact us to help you. To protect your privacy, you may be asked to show a passport, driving licence or some other proof of identity.

For further information about the NHS Number visit the NHS.UK website.
