Indicative Timeline

The Inquiry recognises that providing a timetable may assist people who wish to participate with their preparations, but it is too early for us to be able to give a detailed timeline. As the Inquiry progresses, updates will be published on this website.

Our four priorities for public engagement and contact with the Inquiry in its early life are:

  • Public launch of Scottish Covid-19 Inquiry website
  • Design and launch of a Listening Project
  • Preparation and issue by the Inquiry of interim factual record of the key strategic elements of the handling of the pandemic
  • Structured calls by the Inquiry for evidence and written submissions

Later stages will include oral hearings, finalisation of the draft factual record of the key strategic elements of the handling of the pandemic, and ultimately publication of reports on lessons learned, implications for the future, and recommendations.
