The Rabies Prevention and Control Guidance is published jointly by the National Zoonoses Committee and the Health Protection Surveillance Centre. It supersedes the HPSC “Protocol for Management of Possible Rabies Exposure, November 2011”, and all hard copies of that document should be destroyed.
This document is intended to provide guidance on the public health management of potential exposure to rabies and is aimed at the following professionals:
Consultants in Public Health Medicine;
Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) Veterinary Inspectors
Local Authority Veterinary Inspectors
Other medical and veterinary professionals who are involved in the management of such exposures.
This guidance was produced by a subgroup of the National Zoonoses Committee and staff from HPSC.
