Letter in the Financial Times
The failure of the government’s testing strategy (Report, September 22) is a lesson in confusing resources with capabilities. Commercial NHS test and trace has resources but not capabilities. NHS labs and local authority directors of public health supported by Public Health England have capabilities but not resources.
In order to resolve this conundrum, we should provide the experts who are custodians of those capabilities with the resources they need to do their job.
