Funding for Covid-19 testing is UK-wide. This means Devolved Administrations do not receive a Barnett Consequential on this expenditure, but receive a share of the testing equipment that DHSC procure for the UK. At present, DHSC are providing five testing sites and thirteen mobile testing units in Scotland, which complement the testing activities of NHS Scotland.
