Surveillance expertise

The provision of expertise to deliver scanning surveillance draws on a wide range of discipline and disease experts from within APHA (England and Wales), SRUC, SAC Consulting Veterinary Services and the wider Defra Group.

This expertise includes the Species Expert Groups and scientific disciplines of: parasitology, toxicology, antimicrobial resistance, bacteriology, virology, epidemiology, zoonoses and pathology.

There is also access to expertise outside the government networks through contacts and collaboration, and the external members of Species Expert Groups.
