You now have an NHS login with a verified email address and phone number. This is low level proof of who you are. However, to use the Airmid app you must verify your identity to a high level. Click Continue.

You will be asked to submit a photo of your ID and a scan of your face. Instructions will tell you how to do this using the camera on your device. The scan will be used to match your face with your photo ID.

The accepted types of photo ID are:

  • Passport
  • UK driving licence (full or provisional)
  • UK residence card or biometric residence permit
  • European driving licence (full)
  • European national identity card

Now to make a short video recording of your face, with you saying four specific numbers, so that the NHS can verify your face and the ID.

To do this you can:

  • say the numbers (as in the screenshots here)
  • sign the numbers using British Sign Language
  • write the numbers down and show them

Select the option you prefer and click Continue. Note the four numbers and click Open Camcorder.

Record the video with the phone camera facing you. If you are satisfied with the recording press the tick, otherwise press the cross and try again.

Before you can continue, replay the video to check that you see all your face and hear the numbers clearly. If not, record the video again.

Once you are happy with recording, click the Continue button. You will then see the progress screen as your video is uploaded.

Your identity will now be carefully checked by our ID checking team and can take up to 24 hours to be verified. This can be longer at busy times. You will be emailed to let you know if the ID check has been successful. You can then log back into Airmid and complete the process.

View Instructions for completing the process in order for the App to find your records.
