The NHS COVID-19 app is no longer in use and the Isle of Wight trial has now ended. This is archived information from 18 June 2020. If you still have the app, please uninstall it.
The NHS COVID-19 app data will only ever be used for NHS care, management, evaluation and research. At this stage, research purposes are yet to be determined and will be considered once the coronavirus crisis has ended. We believe that data gathered by the app might help future generations to manage future pandemics and to help with NHS planning. Data will be retained in line with the law and on the basis of the necessary approvals required by law.
