Notifiable disease reporting

Under the South Australian Public Health Act 2011, medical practitioners and diagnostic laboratories are required to notify SA Health of cases (including deaths) suspected of having or diagnosed with specified infections or diseases. These infections or diseases are commonly referred to as 'notifiable conditions’.

Urgent telephone notification by medical practitioners is required for conditions listed below with a telephone number along side the condition. Please phone the Communicable Disease Control Branch (CDCB) 24 hours/7 days a week on 1300 232 272.

All other infections should be notified as soon as practicable but, in any event, within three days of suspecting or confirming a diagnosis of a notifiable condition.

For more information about the reasoning behind notification and the legal requirements, see the the fact sheet for health professionals (PDF 2MB)
