The British Paediatric Surveillance Unit (BPSU) lessens the burden on reporting doctors of receiving requests from numerous different sources for reporting cases of rare disorders.

The BPSU aims to encourage and support:

- surveillance of rare disorders
- awareness of rare disorders among clinicians and the public
- a rapid response to public health emergencies
- improvement in prevention, treatment and service planning for rare disorders
- public and patient involvement in research
- international surveillance of rare disease.

The BPSU enables paediatricians to:

- participate in the nationwide surveillance of infections and infection related conditions
- promote the study of rare childhood disorders
- provide a mechanism by which 'new' diseases can be detected so that early investigation can take place.
