Infectious diseases reports

Surveillance is vital for managing and controlling infectious diseases. Our Microbiology Department is continually monitoring the infectious diseases circulating in our region. It is now drawing on the information it gathers to provide you with easy-to-read up-to-the minute reports.

Respiratory virus reports are available now, with pertussis and other infectious diseases to be rolled out over the coming weeks.


Respiratory Viruses

These are weekly reports of the significant infectious diseases circulating in our area of service. Updates are made mid-week.

The molecular diagnosis of respiratory infections has now become the mainstay of diagnosis providing much more timely diagnosis of acute infection.
