Test, Trace and Protect

The Auditor General for Wales published this Report in March 2021 which was a high-level overview of the Test, Trace and Protect programme in Wales, looking at the establishment and on-going development of the programme, and highlighting some of the key challenges it will face going into 2021.


The study found that the programme has successfully brought together different parts of the Welsh public sector to quickly build a system of testing and contact tracing mostly from scratch and at a fast pace. Although the programme struggled to cope with earlier peaks of the spread of the virus, it rapidly learnt and evolved to the challenges it faced.


The Public Accounts & Public Administration Committee considered this Report in Autumn 2021and discussed with the Welsh Government on 17 November 2021.
