Integrate Project (Enhanced Gastroenteritis Surveillance) is a Wellcome-DH funded research study led by Prof Sarah O’Brien at Liverpool University. The objective is to create enhanced surveillance systems for gastrointestinal illness. The surveillance system will include veterinary surveillance and much more advanced and rapid identification of organisms responsible for vomiting and diarrhoea.

University of Surrey is leading Work Package 3 which will implement AEGISS2, the statistical system developed in Work Package 1, and the modern microbiological techniques from Work Package 2 alongside current methods of testing for the causes of levitra online us assistance diarrhoea/ diarrhoea and vomiting and detecting outbreaks. The WP will compare the ability of the current and modern microbiology approaches to detect pathogens, the bugs that cause infections. The WP will also look at how long the new active surveillance system, AEGISS2, and the current system take to buy viagra online from canada detect outbreaks, the size and buy cymbalta online no prescription spread of the outbreaks they detect, and therefore how quickly public health action can be taken.

We are in the process of recruiting pilot practices and looking to recruit a network of practices that can provide over 6,000 stool samples in the project’s first year. 

The RCGP Research and Surveillance Centre (RSC) publishes weekly reports on Gastroenteritis disease in England. These include data broken by region for incidences of Gastroenteritis. The report can be downloaded from the RCGP RSC’s webpage:
