Information for health professionals

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. This allows the authorities to monitor the disease and provide an early warning of possible outbreaks.

See more information on notifications of infectious diseases from Public Health England.
