A reminder to prepare for the ‘Test and Trace’ app


Last week you may have seen that national guidance is now available for NHS organisations ahead of the app’s launch tomorrow.


When the app goes live on Thursday 24 September 2020, QR Codes should be displayed in NHS buildings across England, including GP practices. In order to register their presence on site, every visitor/patient will be expected to scan the code with their phone. They will then be taken to a secure website where they enter their contact details.


You can create a poster featuring the QR code here and you can also view FAQs about the test and trace app here.
