Public Health England (PHE) undertakes enhanced surveillance of enteric fever in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. On 23 December 2015, PHE published the 2014 report of enteric fever.

A total of 311 laboratory confirmed, symptomatic cases of enteric fever were reported in England, Wales and Northern Ireland in 2014.

As in previous years, the majority of these cases were associated with travel to the Indian sub-continent; with India and Pakistan the most frequently reported countries of travel. Where the reason for travel was known, the most common reason was visiting friends and relatives, with the majority of travellers visiting their country of ethnic origin [1].
