NHS Test and Trace is a national programme which ensures that anyone who develops symptoms of COVID-19 can be tested quickly. It also helps trace close recent contacts of anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 and notifies them so that they can stay at home and help stop the spread of the virus.
We know that not all of our residents will be as familiar with the programme as others. To help understand of how effective it will be in Tower Hamlets, there is a new survey to gauge:
- understanding of the symptoms of COVID-19
- awareness of NHS Test and Trace
- ability to self-isolate, along with any support residents may need to self-isolate
- any barriers our residents may face in engaging with the programme.
The findings will help to generate insights about the effectiveness of NHS Test and Trace locally, which will be used to support residents to engage with the programme.
