NHS Test and Trace is an outsourced service provided to the National Health Service in England, established in May 2020 to track and help prevent the spread of COVID-19. It is part of the National Institute for Health Protection; the service and the institute are both headed by Baroness Dido Harding.
I'm originally from Liverpool and worked as a national magazine journalist for more than 30 years before suffering a stroke at age 53. I started blogging as part of a neuro-rehabilitation programme and wrote the very first entries with one finger of my disabled left hand. Later, art became another therapy for me at Headway East London's Submit To Love studios. I blog regularly and volunteer as a teaching assistant, coaching schoolchildren in aspects of journalism.
