Syndromic Surveillance is the real-time (or near real-time) collection, analysis, interpretation and dissemination of health-related data to enable the early identification of the impact (or absence of impact) of potential human or veterinary public-health threats which require effective public health action.

The HPA Real-time Syndromic Surveillance Team co-ordinate several national syndromic systems and produce routine syndromic surveillance bulletins and reports.

Each bulletin is updated and published weekly on, and is downloadable from, the Real-time Syndromic Surveillance Team pages on the HPA website.

Previously published weekly bulletins can be accessed from the Syndromic Systems and Bulletin Archive pages.
