3. Despite much noisy criticism from the Scottish Tories, among others in the Opposition,

the Scottish NHS opted out of the English and Welsh NHS tracing app and developed its own, based on the Google/Apple approach:


Three Scottish trusts trial Covid-19 contact-tracing software

Contact-tracing software is being trialled across three trusts in Scotland in a bid to tackle the Covid-19 outbreak.

The technology will be tested in NHS Fife, NHS Lanarkshire and NHS Highland from 18 May.

The pilot, expected to last two weeks, will allow the trusts to test the software, which will be used by contact tracers to collect the information they need digitally.

Tracers will then be able to contact those suspected of coming into contact with coronavirus.
