From Brenda Steele:
Why does the Sunday post not make it clear that it is the performance of a UK Government Testing Hub that Mr Cole-Hamilton is dissatisfied with?
If he is unhappy that they lost his results and thinks there should be faster turnaround, he needs to complain to either Deloitte – who manage it – or the UK Government.
Telling Scottish Health Secretary Jeane Freeman and Jason Leitch, Scotland’s National Clinical Director, wastes their valuable time and will do nothing to get the problems fixed. And we do know that this system has problems
The results of tens of thousands of Covid-19 tests carried out by the government’s network of testing centres are not being shared locally, stalling efforts to control the outbreak, it has emerged.A leaked email, seen by the Health Service Journal (HSJ), said data from a new testing programme of non-NHS labs – managed by consultancy firm Deloitte – is not available.
And note that the UK Government DOES NOT SHARE THE DATA.
ED: Readers may remember Cole-Hamilton’s previous creepy use of his family to get attention.
In 2019, he allegedly saved his daughter’s life as she choked on a coin: https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/news/local/fife/846042/msp-saves-child-from-choking/
In 2016, he got his dad to write in and attack Scottish schools: https://thoughtcontrolscotland.com/2016/12/28/herald-newspaper-and-stv-news-fooled-by-unqualified-inexperienced-professor-and-lib-dem-supportermsps-dad-into-attacking-scottish-schools-methods/
The stories were everywhere. I wonder how they go there?
