We may will contact the patient to find
out the background to the case, and to try and establish the source
of infection. The main purpose of this is to prevent the spread of
the disease within the community.
We will then give advice relating to the
control measures the patient should take to reduce the risk of
transmitting the disease to others. Treatment of the disease is
controlled by the G.P.
