As we move into the next phase of the Scottish Government COVID-19 response, a "test, trace, isolate, support" approach will be introduced. Read the Scottish Government’s Coronavirus (COVID-19): test, trace, isolate, support strategy.

As NHS Scotland moves to implementation of this strategy, current contact tracing capacity will be enhanced to deliver a sustainable service across Scotland.  

The COVID-19 tracing team needs additional suitably qualified and experienced staff.  Posts including contact tracing call handlers, contact tracing call supervisors and data analysts are now open to applications up until May 22.

In relation to registrations made Environmental Health Officer's or others with suitably experiences, in the drop down boxes on the registration form, the "PHS Tracing Team" options should be selected for "sector", "professional group" and "which profession are you primarily interested in", and the "Public Health" option should be selected for the "what primary area of speciality that you have experience in would you like to be able to help with."

Further information and registration of interest can be made at the following website.
