Infectious diseases 

Environmental health is responsible for ensuring that incidents and outbreaks of food poisoning and infectious disease within the Cheshire East area are investigated and controlled. We pay particular attention to those individuals who could pose an increased risk of spreading infection through their work. For example these include food handlers, health care staff and those that work with pre school children and vulnerable individuals.

Our investigations may include sampling of individuals, questionnaires to establish foods eaten, places visited or contact with others and inspection of premises that are linked to an infection.
