With reference to the Cheltenham Festival of 2020, which began 10 March 2020, shortly before announcement of the pandemic, Scally, said the following month that “I think it’s very tempting to link [the seeming high number of COVID-19 cases in Gloucestershire] to the Cheltenham Festival. Really, from a health point of view, [it] should have been stopped in advance”.

In May 2020, alongside Bobbie Jacobson from Johns Hopkins University and Kamran Abbasi from the British Medical Journal, Scally co-authored an editorial in the British Medical Journal titled “The UK’s public health response to covid-19”. They described the UK’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic as “too little, too late, too flawed”, with no adequate plan for community-based case-finding, testing, and contact tracing. Their findings were published in the New Statesman, and discussed in Medscape, the British Journal of Social Psychology and the Practice Nurse. Former director of public health, Marie Armitage, described the editorial as a “clear, concise analysis and call to action”. In the same year he became a member of the Independent SAGE committee.

In 2020 he expressed concerns about the management of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ireland in the newspaper Barron’s, the government’s plans to end Public Health England (PHE), and the implementation of Operation Moonshot.

Beginning in May 2018, Scally led an independent inquiry into the failures of cervical screening and CervicalCheck in the Republic of Ireland, following an audit which revealed potential errors in women diagnosed with cervical cancer. His findings, including his concerns of the attitudes of some oncologists, were reported in the Scally Report in 2018.

In 2017 he was appointed president of the epidemiology and public health section of the Royal Society of Medicine. In 2021 he was noted to be its past president.

In March 2012, in opposition to the then Health Secretary, Andrew Lansley’s, plans for the NHS, Scally resigned from England’s Department of Health as a consequence of the then Conservative-Liberal Democrats’ coalition government’s health policies. Subsequently, he was appointed as an associate fellow at the Institute for Public Policy Research think tank, and as a visiting chair at the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England, where he was also director the World Health Organization Collaborating Centre on Healthy Urban Environments. In 2013, on the subject of food adulteration, he said that it was not a new problem.
