If you plan to attend our office for assessments, classes, interviews etc can you please ensure that you have downloaded the NHS Covid 19 app available on both Google Play and the App Store. You will be requested to check in on arrival.

The app has six key features which provide you with maximum freedom and minimum risk

This will help you, our staff and local communities, they are:

1. Trace

Get alerted if you’ve been near other app users who have tested positive for Covid-19, with advice on what to do.

2. Alert

The app lets you know the level of Covid-19 risk in your postcode district. When you first register you will be asked for the first half of your postcode.  You can check the app the app to see whether where you live has become a high risk area, if it is you will also receive a notification to let you know.

3. Check-in

Get alerted if you have recently visited a venue where you may have come into contact with Covid-19.  The app records the time you spend at the venue without recording any personal information.

4. Symptoms

Check if you have Covid-19 symptoms and see if you need to order a free test. The app will give you a list of potential symptoms and you can choose the ones that apply to you.  It will then tell you if your symptoms suggest you have Covid-19.

5. Test

If you have Covid-19 symptoms the app will take you to a website where you can book a test to see if you have Covid-19 or not.

6. Isolate

If you have been advised by the app to self-isolate, the app provides a countdown timer so that you can keep track of how long you need to self-isolate.  When you reach the end of your self-isolation period, the app will send you a reminder with a link to the latest advice.
