NHS mail

NHS mail (information updated January 2019)

NHS mail is a secure email service, approved for the transmission of patient data. NHS mail addresses have the suffix @nhs.net. MKCCG requires all practices to use this secure system to send them your SPA referrals, cataract referrals and invoices. 

To apply for an account, download an application form by visiting https://portal.nhs.net/help/joiningnhsmail and clicking on ‘Optometry registration’. Then send the completed form to england.optom-athsm@nhs.net for MK practices, or to servicedesk.cscsu@nhs.net for practices in the rest of Bucks.
