NHS test and trace: how it works

29th May 2020, 9:25am | By Ros Griffiths |

The NHS test and trace service:

  • ensures that anyone who develops symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) can quickly be tested to find out if they have the virus, and also includes targeted asymptomatic testing of NHS and social care staff and care home residents
  • helps trace close recent contacts of anyone who tests positive for coronavirus and, if necessary, notifies them that they must self-isolate at home to help stop the spread of the virus

This service has been introduced to help return life more to normal, in a way that is safe and protects our NHS and social care. It will allow us to trace the spread of the virus and isolate new infections and play a vital role giving us early warning if the virus is increasing again, locally or nationally.
