The app only uses your postcode district. This is the first part of your postcode. For example, “PE12”. It will not provide the precise location where you live.

We need your postcode district to help the NHS: 

  • learn more about the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on the public, communities and local services

  • monitor the effectiveness of the app

  • predict and manage demand on local hospital services

  • provide tailored advice to people and app users living within an area at high risk of coronavirus
