The NHS Covid-19 app

Today the NHS Covid-19 app launched across England and Wales for those aged 16 and over to use to help us control the transmission of the virus, as we continue to use every tool at our disposal to keep this virus under control.

  • Britain is now at the tipping point in our efforts to control the spread of this virus, and with infections rates rising once again, the government aims to make it as easy as possible for everyone in England and Wales to engage in our NHS Test and Trace services. 
  • The government has have worked extensively with tech companies, international partners, and privacy and medical experts to develop an app that is secure and simple to use and will work alongside traditional contact tracing to help reduce the spread of this virus, by allowing people to find out if they are risk of having caught the virus and need to self-isolate, order a test if they have symptoms and access the right guidance and advice – all through their smartphone.
  • This is a significant step forward in our efforts against this invisible killer, and the government urges everyone who can to download and use the app to protect themselves and their loved ones.
