Perhaps not a conventional smartcard, but in principle you could have
some sort of necessary token stored on a micro-HD card plugged into an
Android device. Such a scheme might or might not be proof against an
attacker gaining a simple copy of that data (and the Android system
allows remote interrogation of the micro-HD card without very much in
the way of credentials).
A better idea might be some sort of "Cryptocard" token, are they
approved for NHS use?
