Find Your NHS Number

Need Your NHS Number?

Use the simple NHS online service to get it quickly. Your NHS number looks like this: 485 777 3456.

While not required for using NHS services, having your NHS number handy can be useful.

Who Can Use The Online Service?

This service is available for anyone living in England. You can also use it to get the NHS number for someone else.

How It Works

  1. Provide Basic Details: You will be asked for your name, date of birth, and postcode.
  2. Get Your Number: You will be sent your NHS number to you via text, email, or letter.

If you’re using the service for someone else, simply enter their details, and their NHS number will be sent directly to them.
