Tell the NHS about your current experience of coronavirus

A survey that will help the NHS understand more about how and where coronavirus (COVID-19) is affecting people now.

By answering some quick questions, you can help the NHS plan its response to coronavirus.

The NHS especially wants to hear from you if you have symptoms, no matter how mild. But it also helps if you let us know if you’re feeling OK.
