BBC Scotland today is featuring: Scotland’s Covid contact tracing staff lacked training – watchdog
The report is based on concerns raised by ‘a worker’, ‘sometimes‘, ‘there is reason to believe‘ and ‘some‘. The only numbers are in this:
It found 91% had complied with the agreed call centre scripts but that a “relatively high number” (25% of all cases) had the exposure date changed after the initial call by a quality control or supervisor check.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-62765825
There’s no mention, needless to say of this kind of thing, reported here in two years ago:
Less than 3 weeks ago, Scotland’s MSM and their opposition party feeders were hopeful they might embarrass the Scottish Government on their contact tracing data. Sadly for them, last week, the FM was able to reveal 97% success.
Today the figures for England were published and only 75.5% have been contacted, failing the 80% (only) target there: https://www.theguardian.com/world/live/2020/aug/27/uk-coronavirus-live-people-on-low-pay-to-get-covid-isolation-payment?page=with:block-5f479b928f08767dd7f1044e#block-5f479b928f08767dd7f1044e
The Scottish performance is thus (22% of 75%) 30% better.
As for the contact tracing system in England? See this from October 2021:
NHS Test and Trace criticised as ‘eye-watering’ waste of money in damning report.
The report by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) said that the NHS Test and Trace programme has not succeeded in helping break chains of transmission of coronavirus since its launch in May last year, nor has it helped a return to a more normal way of life.
The report states that the programmes outcomes have been “muddled” and a number of its aims have been “overstated or not achieved”.
This is despite the programme being pumped with the equivalent of 20% of the NHS’s entire annual budget – £37 billion over two years.https://www.lbc.co.uk/news/nhs-coronavirus-test-and-trace-failures-mps-report/
