A Data Protection Impact Assessment is currently in development for the National Health Service Test and Trace programme as a whole. It will continue to evolve and be kept under constant review as the programme develops. The NHS Test and Trace programme is committed to the highest ethical and data governance standards and we will continue to publish privacy information for the public setting out clearly the bases on which NHS Test and Trace is collecting personal data and the purposes for which it will be used.
