Opening NHSmail Attachments

Community Pharmacy West Yorkshire has had reports that some pharmacies are not able to open attachments sent via NHSmail. If you are unable to open attachments when using NHSmail and seeing the message ‘You don't have permission to download files’, you need to log out of your account and log in again. When you log in you will see a tick box below your log in details which says, ‘This is a private computer’. If you tick this box and then log in, you should then be able to open the attachments.
