18th July 2019 by Asimina Pantazi


medCrowd is the instant messenger for health and care that protects confidential information to the required standards. It is free, and you can use it safely to discuss confidential information with your health and care team.

The real question is – how do I begin? Easy.

You can access medCrowd through the medCrowd website from your computer, or by downloading the medCrowd app for free from the Apple App store or Google Play store.

You can join medCrowd now by yourself, or alternatively, accept an invitation sent by another medCrowd member. Just find “Join now” and submit your profile information. You will receive a verification email or SMS to check your details have been submitted correctly. Once your details are verified, you are ready to join teams and conversations!

You can find out more about medCrowd teams and conversations, so you’ll be ready to get started with medCrowd.

Top tip!

Safety and confidentiality are our priority. To meet NHS standards, your password must:

  • Be at least 7 characters long

  • Contain both upper- and lower-case characters

  • Contain numbers and symbols

Do you feel that you need more guidance? You can complete our online training module about medCrowd. If you successfully complete the quiz at the end of the module, you’ll obtain a certificate that demonstrates you’re ready to get things started on medCrowd!

Now you’ve joined medCrowd, why don’t you start your first conversation or invite your team with their mobile number or email address?
