How to use the NHS App guide

Good Things Foundation and BT have teamed up to develop these essential resources to support you with the NHS App.

The NHS COVID-19 app, available to download in England and Wales, is the fastest way to see if you’re at risk from coronavirus. The faster you know, the quicker you can alert and protect your loved ones and community, helping to stop the spread of coronavirus.

The App has a number of tools to protect you, including contact tracing, information on local area restrictions and venue check-in. It simply provides a simple and secure way for people to access a range of healthcare services via a smartphone or tablet.

You can familiarize yourself with the NHS data and privacy policy here.
