Notifiable Diseases: Information for Registered Medical Practitioners

Statutory notification by Registered Medical Practitioners of suspected notifiable diseases

If you are a Registered Medical Practitioner, you are required to immediately notify Public Health for all cases where you have a clinical suspicion of a notifiable disease being present.

Immediate notification is important as there is often a critical window of time in which effective public health control measures can be implemented.

Registered Medical Practitioners must submit the online notification form for all cases:

Report a notifiable disease

For diseases that require urgent notification, you must call the hospital switchboard on +44 (0) 1534 442000 who will notify the on-call Public Health responsible person.

In the unlikely event that the form is unavailable, call the hospital switchboard to report a notifiable disease.

This reporting process does not replace clinical pathways or consultations with medical specialists regarding patient care or disease management.

After you make a notification

Public Health will undertake a risk assessment which may include:

  • details of significant contacts who might have been exposed
  • vaccination history 
  • epidemiologically linked cases 
  • factors that may make contacts more vulnerable 
  • potential source of infection/contamination 
  • wider public health context 
Public Health will then provide advice on control measures which may include: 

  • isolation and exclusion  
  • further laboratory testing 
  • post-exposure prophylaxis or immunisation  
  • other control measures
