Details

The Great Britain (GB) surveillance 2015 report, the GB 2015 surveillance data report and the epidemiology report for England 2015 are all commissioned by Defra and the Devolved Administrations.

There are some changes to the presentation and structure of the 2015 reports compared to the reports published in 2014. All the data for Great Britain has been standardised and placed in a single report (the GB surveillance data report) while a description of the epidemic as it occurred in 2015 across the 3 countries of Great Britain is provided in the GB surveillance report.

A detailed analysis and interpretation of the epidemic in England in the light of control measures and policy (i.e. the strategy for achieving Officially Bovine Tuberculosis Free status for England), is provided in the England epidemiology report.

The 3 reports are based on the same source of data used for the national statistics on bTB in cattle in Great Britain. However, because of differences in how the data is prepared for each publication, there are small discrepancies between some of the analysis. These are explained in the reports.

GB surveillance report

This provides a description of the level and distribution of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) in cattle in England, Scotland and Wales and a comparison between the 3 countries. It partly replaces the previous annual bTB surveillance reports for both England and Great Britain.

GB surveillance data report

This has detailed surveillance data tables and graphics about the status of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) in cattle in England, Scotland and Wales. It partly replaces the previous annual bTB surveillance reports for both England and Great Britain.

Epidemiology report for England

This report describes the bTB epidemic in England and includes commentary and analyses of the different risk areas of England, in light of different intervention policies.

It incorporates detailed local knowledge of bTB in the high risk area and edge area reports and refers to the GB surveillance data report. Extracts from the full report are also available to provide shorter reports that are more useable when printed. These consist of the executive summary and section summaries and the county summary reports.

Report to the European Commission (EC)

This is an annual report to the EC that provides an overview of the bovine TB situation in the counties of the low risk area of the North and East of England, for which an application for Officially TB Free (OTF) status is expected to be submitted in 2018.
