Clinical Surveillance

Clinical Surveillance

Whilst clinical surveillance is potentially an enormous area for applied research, within this theme we have chosen two infections to focus on; Hantavirus and Lyme Disease.

The overall aim is to improve clinical input and quality of diagnostics to support PHE detection and surveillance programmes, and to improve public engagement with related activities of PHE and its partners.
