Disease surveillance returns are made on a weekly basis, 52 weeks of the year.
The returns MUST be made by no later than each Tuesday morning by 1pm Any returns which come in any later than this are considered late, and therefore could cost the practice money.
Timeliness is incredibly important to facilitate the Surveillance Network. It ensures accurate, up-to-date data is available at all times. This is vital as part of the implementation of Disease Management Stratagies which the HSE depend on.
