RCGP & RSC Practice
Bay Medical Group is one of over 600 practices in England contributing pseudonymised data for national research and surveillance.
This data enables continuous monitoring of infections and diseases in the community and is used in ethically approved research.
The RCGP RSC is the main source of information for Public Health England (PHE) and helps with prediction and managemtn of flu outbreaks and pandemics.
In 2017 the RSC celebrated 50 years of weekly influenza surveillance and reporting, a landmark anniversary. The dataset is nationally representative, having only small differences with the national population, which have now been quantified and can be assessed for clinical relevance for specific studies. With twice weekly data extractions, the dataset is one of the most up to date in the UK.
