NHS Test and Trace
The aim of the national NHS Test, Trace, Contain and Engage service is to control the COVID-19 rate of reproduction (R), reduce the spread of infection and save lives.
This will help return life to as normal as possible, for as many as people as possible, in a way that is safe, protects our health and care systems and releases our economy.
This service will play a vital role in providing an early warning if COVID-19 activity is increasing locally, regionally or nationally. This information will then be used to inform the national approach to stop the spread of the virus.
