Public Health England has opened a consultation this week in joint partnership with professional organisations.
The consultation asks for comments about the bacteriology SMI ID 22: Identification of Escherichia coli O157.
This UK standard for microbiology investigation describes the identification of presumptive vero cytotoxin-producing Escherichia coli O157 (VTEC O157) isolated from faeces. These strains are associated with a wide spectrum of disease including haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS).
We would like input from a wide range of interested parties.
