Avian influenza

The Public Health England has an extensive section on avian influenza on its website. This is regularly updated and should be consulted regularly.

The PHE guidance describes reporting arrangements in England. In Northern Ireland, clinicians should inform the PHE as to who will liaise with the PHE Centre for Infections, London. It is important this reporting route is followed to ensure that those who have operational responsibility are informed as soon as possible.

Further information on avian influenza (bird flu) including symptoms, diagnosis, management and epidemiology is available through following PHE website https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/avian-influenza-guidance-data-and-analysis
