About Testing and Trust
***INTERVIEWS FOR THIS STUDY HAVE NOW ENDED ***
Would you like to help improve COVID-19 testing in Scotland? Are you aged over 18?
We want to hear your stories about being tested. And we want to find out more about your expectations of testing.
You can help improve testing programmes to meet the needs of the Scottish public. If you haven’t been tested for COVID-19, don’t worry, we’d still like you to join.
Testing and Trust is a rapid social study to investigate public understandings, expectations and experiences of COVID-19 testing in Scotland. This study will help the Scottish Government understand how to build public trust in their COVID-19 testing strategy and health services.
This research is funded by the Chief Scientist Office’s Rapid Research in Covid -19 programme.
We are interviewing members of the public in Lothian about their experiences, concerns and expectations of COVID-19 testing, and opinions about the government’s response to the pandemic.
The study is being conducted by a team of social science researchers at the University of Edinburgh.
You can find out more information about the study and its outputs below.
Testing and Trust is supported by the Chief Scientist Office Rapid Research in COVID-19 Programme, Ref. COV/EDI/Portfolio. And by the ERC funded research project Investigating the Design and Use of Diagnostic Devices in Global Health (DiaDev) grant agreement No 715450.
