Infectious Disease Information

The Commercial Regulation team is involved in arrangements to contain any outbreak of these diseases and minimise their spread.

 

The team is informed of infectious disease cases by the Consultant in Communicable Disease Control at Bedfordshire Health. If you think you may be affected by a disease which was food borne, you should go to your G.P. first.  Click here for further information about food poisoning.

 

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.
