Community health
£300m issued to local authorities for Test and Trace

By News Feature - Integrated Care Journal

Local authorities across England have been allocated a share of £300 million to support the new Test and Trace service.

Funding has been allocated to councils based on need, with additional funding provided for communities with lower incomes and higher demand for local healthcare settings.

Minister for Patient Safety, Suicide Prevention and Mental Health, Nadine Dorries, said the funding will "help each local area work hand in hand with Public Health England and contact tracers to focus on the containment of local outbreaks, to control the transmission of this virus."

The £300 million of funding is on top of the £3.2 billion package of support provided to councils to help tackle the virus and respond to the immediate pressures they are facing.

Work is being led by local authority leaders and local directors of public health in charge of planning, and will build on existing efforts to respond to coronavirus locally.

A new National Local Government Advisory Board has been established to work with NHS Test and Trace. This will include sharing best practice between communities across the country.
