I wouldn't care if it was set up by a paragon of virtue, I still won't trust it.

Any app like this has the potential (and the destiny) to be abused.

Any source that isn't a parody account?

Because the app was actually developed in house by the NHS tech team. Are we not trusting the NHS now?

Because in the UK generally, and especially right now, the NHS is very highly regarded and respected. This app wasn't made by "the government" but by the NHS in house. If you trust an organisation to treat your cancer and crack your chest open and start removing stuff then you should be able to trust them with data from an app. The same NHS already has your entire medical history. It's a bit late to decide you don't trust them.
