Public Health data - Influenza, Viruses etc

Data on the Public Health Surveillance website ( is currently distributed in PDF format. This makes the data almost unusable for other interested parties (eg. computer modellers, public health researchers etc). It would be helpful if the data on this website could be made available - perhaps via APIs.

Modelling the behaviour of health and ill-health can assist with data visualisation to give researchers and the public a sense of how disease can spread. It could also be used to model future epidemics.
