|Frequency||Weekly, Monthly (Ethnicity)|
|Time frame of data and timeliness||Data for each week published on the subsequent Wednesday.|
|Coverage||Data covering all of Scotland for positive cases, NHS24 calls, hospital admissions and admissions to ICU, contact with COVID-19 Hubs and Assessment Centres and COVID-19 related primary care out of hours consultations. Data on contacts with COVID-19 Hubs and Assessment Centres includes data for NHS Grampian from 1 May due to problems with extracting data from their system.|
|Completeness||All Scottish laboratories submit positive results to ECOSS. NHS24 data is submitted daily covering the activity for the previous day and covers all clinical and dental calls, excluding calls to NHS inform for advice only. Data collection for the SICSAG core dataset is by the bespoke Wardwatcher data collecting platform. It includes admissions to intensive care units (ICUs), combined intensive care/high dependency units, and areas of hospital which have been repurposed to provide intensive care. The data does not include admissions to paediatric ICUs, neonatal ICUs and standalone high dependency units (HDUs).|
|Accuracy||ECOSS data is subject to data quality and assurance processes. There are ongoing data quality discussions with NHS Boards regarding New COVID and Assessment Hub data. SICSAG data is subject to ongoing validation and must be regarded as dynamic.|
|Continuity of data||Data is produced weekly from 2 April 2020. From 24 June, the data released includes testing results from the UK Government’s Regional Testing Centres, as well as data from NHS Laboratories, including historic test results.|
