Public Health Wales statement

Published: 17 December 2020

A Public Health Wales spokesperson said:

“As Public Health Wales has indicated previously, the data delay over the weekend was part of essential maintenance for the wider Welsh NHS led by the NHS Wales Informatics Service.  Public Health Wales announced on Friday that the maintenance would have an impact on its reporting. 

“It has not affected individuals receiving their results and the contract tracing process being commenced.

“Members of the public can be reassured that anyone who tests positive will be contacted by their local authority’s Test, Trace, Protect team in the usual way. There have been no errors in the Public Health Wales reporting.”
