first_imgCambridge, Liverpool and Nottingham Universities join APHA’s scanning surveillance network for livestock disease The APHA’s post-mortem examination and diagnostic testing service provides a major component of the GB scanning surveillance network. The network works closely with vets and farmers to detect and investigate new or re-emerging disease, and diagnose endemic diseases in farm animals.From 1 January 2021, three additional post-mortem providers will be joining the scanning surveillance network. These are the Universities of Cambridge, Liverpool and Nottingham. This adds to the five current post-mortem examination (PME) providers that work together with the six APHA Veterinary Investigation Centres.These new PME providers will expand the capacity and coverage in England and Wales meaning more vets and farmers will benefit from the available services.
