Flu and contagious diseases
Health incident plans
We have our own plan to respond to outbreaks of pandemic, swine and bird flu. This plan is kept up to date continually. In response to the changing global picture we now maintain a plan for Human Communicable Disease (Viral Haemorrhagic Fever).
We also hold an Animal Health Plan.
We monitor outbreaks of contagious diseases and get updates from the NHS, Local Health Boards and the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) on a regular basis.
The World Health Organisation provides news on disease outbreaks worldwide.
