Any test under the NHS Test and Trace service is free

Yes, it’s free – so if anyone rings you purporting to be part of the NHS Test and Trace service and ‘demands’ money, just put the phone down because their call is a scam.

The NHS website has all the details about its Test and Trace programme, including what should happen if you are contacted, so well worth reading.
