Notification of Infectious Disease or Health Risk State Form

Publication Date: 01 January 2010

The Public Health etc. (Scotland) Act 2008 provides a statutory framework for public health action to protect the people of Scotland from infectious disease, contamination and other such hazards.

Part 2 (Notifiable Diseases, N​​​​​otifiable Organisms and Health Risk States) of the Act came into effect on 1 January 2010.

To support the notifications process and enable those Registered Medical Practitioners working in secondary care who do not have access to SCI Gateway to send notifications to their NHS Board, HPS has provided an alternative notifications form to be used from 1 January 2010.
