Food Borne Disease

HPS provides operational support and advice to health professionals and other agencies on aspects of food safety. HPS carries out surveillance of notifiable diseases that occur in Scotland, which includes foodborne illness. Data are also gathered on laboratory isolates of organisms responsible for gastrointestinal disease from NHS laboratories throughout Scotland. These activities serve to identify trends in foodborne disease and outbreaks.
