Test and tracing worker knocked on model’s door to check if she was isolating herself and sends her flirty text

A Test and Trace employee who knocked on a model’s door to make sure she was isolated at home later sent her a flirtatious text asking if he could keep her number.

Charlotte Roffey, 27, was left in fear in her own home after the government official consulted her records to find out if she was single.

Roffey had been on holiday in Andratx, Majorca, and was home alone in self-isolation when the contact tracer visited her home in Winchester, Hampshire. The sun.

Just minutes after talking to Roffey at her house, the man texted with a waving hand emoji saying, “Do I have permission to store your number?

“Ignore this if you don’t want to or if you have a man or whatever lol.

“I asked for my apologies.”

After receiving the text messages, Roffey sent a screenshot to her partner William Machin, 29, who was playing rugby at the time.

“He was very angry. He was gone and wanted to confront the man, but I encouraged him not to,” Roffey told The Sun.

Speaking of the NHS testing and tracing officer, she said: ‘He has worried me in my own house about who is going to knock on my door next.

“I find it appalling that he has used his power in a totally inappropriate way and it made me concerned about every other woman in the same position.

“I was alone and felt uncomfortable that he had access to all my data.”

Roffey, who did not respond to the man’s message, revealed that he has since added her on social media and sent a friend request on Facebook.

The Department of Health and Social Care has now launched an investigation after their employee used Roffey’s private information.

Roffey added: ‘It was instilled in me to stay home, and the consequences if I didn’t were a fine of up to £10,000.

“To have someone come to my door with such disregard for the rules – illegally using my phone number – is ridiculous.

“I can understand why the government finds it so difficult to enforce the rules and take people seriously.”

Roffey had completed her passenger identification form before landing at Heathrow after a holiday with friends to Andratx, Majorca for three nights earlier this month.

She had filled in her personal details on the form, including her name, age, mobile number and home address, so that an NHS contact tracer could visit her home to check that she had been in self-isolation for ten days.

But on Saturday, two days after her return to the UK, she was visited by the man who later sent her a flirty text.

roffey said: “He came to my door and we talked for a while.

“He told me he had already marked me ‘home’ on the system they use, but he didn’t have a uniform or badges that I was aware of.

‘He was friendly. It didn’t feel professional at all, as I had been afraid someone would come to my house.’

She revealed that the contact tracer had told her “tricks” to avoid getting caught if she had to leave her home during the 10-day isolation period.

Roffey has spoken out about the incident so people know how their information could be misused.

She said: “People need to know for sure that this is happening.

“I’m sure this isn’t the first time, but it’s completely unacceptable and unprofessional.

“It also downplays the system that the government has put in place.

“It’s important to share my story because it highlights people who are willing to use their power to their advantage.

“I’m also concerned about young women or vulnerable people who may be naive.”

A spokesperson for the Department of Health and Social Care told the newspaper: ‘We take complaints about NHS Test and Trace contact tracers very seriously and all will be investigated and appropriate action taken.

‘The government expects all our staff to behave in a professional manner at all times and if people are not happy with the service – either the phone checks or in person visits – you can complain to NHS Test and Trace online or phone 119 .’
