Pandemic flu

A pandemic from a novel influenza virus remains a potential risk for the UK. The UK-wide Influenza Pandemic Preparedness Strategy aims to ensure that the UK continues to be one of the best-prepared countries in the world.

The updated plan has been developed following consultation with a range of health and social care professionals, and aims to create more flexibility and clearer communication between everyone involved in the Government response to a pandemic.
