Third legionella case announced in two weeks

14 December 2016

A patient at Gloucester Royal Hospital may have been infected with legionnaires' disease in October, it was announced today.

According to the BBC, the possibility that the patient was infected while at the hospital's dialysis unit is being investigated.

No other patients have been affected, and control measures have been implemented to remove the risk of the bacteria spreading.

The BBC quoted a trust spokesman as saying: "We recognise that this must be a distressing time for our patient and we have been keeping the patient fully informed about this isolated event.

"We are taking further precautions by increasing our water testing to minimise further the chance of this occurring again," he said.

The report also stated that a join review conducted by the hospital and Public Health England will consider whether further actions need to be taken.
