A GP surgery in Hereford has been closed after staff were 'pinged' by the NHS Covid app.

Hereford Medical Group confirmed it was forced to close the Quay House Medical Centre on Friday.

In a statement, the surgery said: "We are experiencing a high level of staff absence due to isolation," the group said.

"This is from staff members being contacted by the NHS app."

"This is not unique to Hereford Medical Group with many NHS organisations, and non-NHS organisations, being impacted."
