DHSC press release: Online isolation notes launched - providing proof of coronavirus absence from work
People unable to work for more than seven days because of coronavirus (COVID-19) can obtain an isolation note through a new online service.
A messaging and conferencing app will be available for free, for a limited time period across the NHS, to counter the increased risks associated with COVID-19.
NHS Digital has been asked by the Secretary of State for Health & Social Care and NHS England to collect and analyse data as part of measures to counter the spread of Coronavirus.
The NHS today unveiled new developments in its efforts to ensure people find trusted information online. It has worked with Google to ensure it provides the public in the UK with easy access to NHS information about more than 250 of the most searched for health conditions on the NHS website, through new Knowledge Panels.
The most popular 250 pages of clinically assured content on the NHS website can now be used more flexibly, thanks to the next stage of the existing syndication programme.
