Basic Information

Overview

Registered medical practitioners in England and Wales have a statutory duty to notify their local authority, or local Health Protection Team, of suspected cases of certain infectious diseases. All laboratories in England performing a primary diagnostic role must notify Public Health England (PHE) when they confirm a notifiable organism. PHE collects these notifications and publishes analyses of local and national trends every week.
