12,000 patients could be at risk of HIV

24th April 2009

Lewisham Primary Care Trust has sent letters asking 12,000 patients to come in for tests after a NHS worker was found to have both HIV and hepatitis C.

The trust has already tested many patients for hepatitis C, but said the danger of patients contracting HIV was "so low that tests were not needed". To date, no patients have "suffered any ill health" as a result of being treated by the staff member.
