*cough* not off to a good start with that cookie notice
Online tracking on Babylon's website for 'COVID-19 Care Assistant for the Coronavirus pandemic"

.. I dunno .. it's like a virus ...

and then oooohh look ... download the app ... oh, go on then ....
Ah .. "The Babylon app is free to download for anyone in the UK. The COVID-19 Care Assistant is free to anyone who uses Babylon services via Babylon GP at Hand .." GP at Hand .

An app that "Patients can use the service 24/7 to check their symptoms, track their illness, cope with self-isolation, access information, chat with trained staff, and consult doctors"
