From our Swindon correspondent:
From The Guardian
No, not Connecting for Health, the Tony Blair initiative to build an NHS records system that squandered £12bn on consultants, but Test and Trace.
No-one has yet explained what, precisely, these suppliers have done wrong. Where they deviated from what the civil servants have asked them to do. Suppliers to government do sometimes cock up, sure, but when it’s a vague “it’s all down to the consultants”, it rather triggers my Spider sense. We know that the crappy use of Excel wasn’t at Serco or any other supplier, but inside the Department of Health.
