Enhanced Surveillance of Legionella Infection in Scotland

This system collects and holds information about laboratory confirmed cases of Legionnaires’ disease and Pontiac Fever in Scotland since 1994.

This surveillance system holds patient identifiable information.

By patient identifiable information we mean details such as name, address or case record number. HPS seeks to limit to a minimum these details and many systems are anonymised, e.g. do not hold individual names and addresses.

Should you wish details of the patient identifiable information held in this system, please contact enquiries.

Further information on data confidentiality can be found on our Information Governance page or can be obtained by contacting the HPS Information Security and Data Protection Officer (Telephone 0141 300 1100).
