NHSmail is a centrally funded and managed secure email and communications service which is approved by the NHS for exchanging patient data.
For a number of years, community pharmacies in England have been able to request a shared NHSmail account. To access a shared NHSmail mailbox, users must have their own personal NHSmail address which is linked to the shared mailbox. This is to allow different staff members to access the mailbox without sharing of login details.
