The NHS COVID-19 app is administered and owned by the UK Health Security Agency, which is an executive agency, sponsored by the Department of Health and Social Care.

The development team includes product managers & designers, software architects and developers, security experts, testers and support staff. The team has staff from Accenture, Alan Turing Institute, NHS Digital, NHSx, Oxford University, VMware Pivotal Lab and Zuhlke Engineering. As the Government’s lead technical authority on cyber security, the National Cyber Security Centre has also supported in an advisory role.

We'll continue to work, and discuss our plans, with diverse stakeholders including the Department of Health and Social Care, Public Health Wales, the Information Commissioner’s Office, National Data Guardian, as well as with representatives from Understanding Patient Data and volunteers who provided a patient and public point of view.
