After having a mooch on the App it also shows my address, asked for my email address and contains appointments - it shows a future hospital appointment of mine.

If applicable you can also order repeat prescriptions.

Password access required and also has secondary security code via text.

Thanks Benal.
A bit of good news? From the Telegraph.
Spain plans to waive its PCR testing requirement for British visitors from May 20, if the UK's Covid infection rates allow.

"[British holidaymakers] could come from May 20 onwards without a PCR if the incidence rates are below the range currently under review, which is around 50 [cases per 100,000 people]", Spain's tourism minister Maria Reyes Maroto told reporters after a weekly cabinet meeting on Tuesday.

Ms Reyes Maroto said during a visit to Alicante on Monday that she thought Britons would be permitted to visit Spain for a holiday from next week.

Hi Benal Pirate,I downloaded the app last week, everything as you said, minus the need for passport and the app certainly didn't take my pic.. I can see medical records, order prescriptions etc.Which app did you download? there are two...covid19 or the general nhs app. For travel it's the general nhs app when it starts. I don't have the nhs covid19 app so i wouldn't know what is required.

Sounds good Katy, now just need to be able to return without having to have so many tests and self isolate.

The vaccination certificate from Andalucia Salud has a QR code and gives your name, NIE, NUHSA number and vaccine date.

What the official EU version will look like I know not.

Just heard a snippet on the car radio. UK When you download the app it has to be all confirmed by your surgery which can take a couple of hours to authenticate. For those without a smartphone dial 119 and you will be sent a paper copy.

Hi Pamela

Pretty sure it is the general NHS App. Blue in colour opens up with "how are you feeling today?" with "continue with NHS login?" below.

Things seem to be changing rapidly now. It didn't seem that long ago that they extended the ban on non residents from the UK coming here. If they say you don't need the PCR test that's a huge change.

Unless the UK changes it's traffic light system though it's still a hassle going back with tests and quarantine. Seems a bit up in the air at the moment. The worst thing is if the UK changes the requirements at short notice for those already away. Not sure if the finishing of the state of alarm here will make any difference to the figures. Moreno seems to be saying he wants to reintroduce the curfew and earlier closing times after the city centres became so crowded at the weekend.

Yes good points Wicksey. I don't want to swop one lockdown for another. I just want normal.

The NHS APP now has a "Share your covid 19 status - View and share proof of your covid 19 status for travel". Much the same data a the covid vaccination page (well it would be wouldn't it). But also has one if those square bar codes for scanning and an expiration date. My expiration date is 2 days prior to my next planned visit but I haven't had my second jab yet.We may need to keep getting jabbed to move on the expiry date.Sneaky.

Media over here in the UK suggesting this app may allow travel within EU without quarantine.

It must have already had some data. It asked for a photo from me.

I’ve just checked mine - it has an expiry date of 20th June 2021. I hade my 2 nd of April.
I also had to take my photo and a security video shot on my iPad so they could verify my identity.
It’s not going to last too long. I’m due to leave Spain again 3rd July .
