The team leads on intelligence, including data analysis and report collation, and governance, supporting the local outbreak engagement board and the three setting-specific outbreak response cells. The team is key in delivering the local outbreak response plan and ensuring we are able to interpret the data from Public Health England and the national test and trace service alongside local intelligence at pace to avoid escalation of local outbreaks.
