Room for improvement in Test and Trace system

10 June 2021

Responding to the latest figures from NHS Test and Trace, the chief executive of NHS Providers, Chris Hopson, said:

"It is concerning to see a 45% increase in the number of people testing positive for COVID-19. We know that the North West in particular is facing increased hospitalisations from COVID-19.

"Today's figures highlight again that there is clear room for improvement in NHS Test and Trace, as over 5,000 people who tested positive were not transferred into the system, and there were also declines in the number of people who were reached and in test turnaround times this week."
