Details

The aims of the Lead Exposure in Children Surveillance System (LEICSS) are to identify cases of children resident in England with elevated blood lead concentrations, to initiate timely public health action for individual cases, and to inform public health interventions to prevent further exposures.

Reports include:

  • Lead Exposure in Children Surveillance System (LEICSS) annual report covering 2017
  • LEICSS: the Surveillance of Elevated Blood Lead in Children (SLiC) study, which ran between 2010 and 2012

LEICSS is a component of the environmental public health surveillance system (EPHSS) operated by Public Health England (PHE) as part of the agency’s environmental public health tracking (EPHT) arrangements.
