We receive notification
of certain infectious diseases from hospitals, general practitioners,
laboratories and schools. We work with these groups in the community
setting to prevent further spread of notifiable diseases.
We work closely with
other Local Health District services including infection control,
sexual health, chest clinic and microbiology/pathology.
