Influenzanet is a system to monitor the activity of influenza-like-illness (ILI) with the aid of volunteers via the internet
Flusurvey.org.uk is an online service that any member of the UK public can log onto to report flu like symptoms they may experience during the winter months. This data will be used by researchers at Public Health England and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to monitor flu trends in the UK.
The UK Flusurvey was launched on 16th July 2009, during the swine flu pandemic, and is part of a Europe-wide initiative to monitor influenza-like illness (ILI) activity. We currently have more than 7,500 people, from all over the UK, participating in this survey and would like to increase this number to make our interpretations more meaningful. If you have participated in previous years please do so again this year.
