Contact tracing

Just a little note to help spread the word that the new NHS contact tracing app is live and can be downloaded to your Android or Apple mobile phone.

The great news is the government finally decided to use the Google and Apple designed system to check your location in the background. That means you don’t need to go through a long sign up process or trust the government with your personal details.

We’d urge you to go and download it right now, it’s quick and easy and could save someone’s life! Just go to the App store or Google Play store and search NHS contact tracing.
