The NHS Scotland Covid Status app meets the requirements of relevant legislation which includes the Data Protection Act 2018 and UK GDPR. A Data Protection Impact assessment (DPIA) is in place for the Covid Status app and the Privacy Notice sets out the main points from the DPIA in a user-friendly way.
