Updated guidance on viral haemorrhagic fevers

The Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP) has published updated specialist guidance on the management of patients with viral haemorrhagic fever (VHF) or other infectious diseases of high consequence.

The guidance replaces previous ACDP guidance issued in 1996 and provides advice on how patients suspected of being infected with a VHF should be comprehensively assessed, rapidly diagnosed and safely managed within the NHS, to ensure the protection of public health.
