MyKanta, which has been in use for more than 10 years, requires technological updates and will be updated to better meet the requirements for modern digital services. Feedback collected from service users plays an important role in updating MyKanta.
The key priorities for the new MyKanta are
- ease of use
- data discoverability
- clear and understandable language
- accessible visual design.
The new MyKanta will also work better with things like screen readers, which improve the service for visually impaired users.
The new and old versions of MyKanta will operate side-by-side during the transition phase
The first functionality available in the new My Kanta will be the ability to view and renew prescriptions.
The old version of MyKanta will remain in use alongside the new one until sufficient functionalities are added to the new MyKanta service. The transition to the new MyKanta will be completed in 2024.
