COVID-19: digital support for patients
NHS COVID-19 app
The NHS Covid-19 app is a vital part in the fight against coronavirus. If you come into close contact with another user who reports a positive test result the app will send you an anonymous alert. You can check your symptoms in the app and if they suggest you may have coronavirus, the app is an easy way to get tested.

Test, Trace, Protect
The NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect service includes a number of partners working together to help contain the spread of the virus - from Public Health Wales, to the local Health Boards and Local Authorities in Wales, Digital Health and Care Wales and others. These partners are responsible for implementing one of the biggest public health interventions in a generation. The public is the most important partner. It is only through your willingness to report your symptoms, identify your contacts and follow advice about self-isolating that we will be able to identify new cases and hotspots of coronavirus.
NHS Wales Video Consulting Service
The Video Consulting Service allows you to have your health and social care appointments from your home or wherever is convenient. It is a web-based communication platform that allows video appointments to take place between patients and clinicians. It is accessible via any type of device that has internet access e.g, smart phone, tablet, laptop or computer with a webcam running Chrome or Safari brower.
