Asbestos found at Alder Hey Children's Hospital

18th November 2011

Airborne asbestos dust has been discovered at Alder Hey Children’s Foundation Trust.

Warning letters have been issued to staff at the Liverpool children’s hospital after levels of airborne asbestos dust were found on its site that were above legal limits. The news of the discovery comes in a board report released to HSJ under the Freedom of Information Act and follows a survey of service ducts in June which found levels of asbestos fibres “that breach the legal protective limit for staff entering the ducts” without protective equipment.

I can't believe this. There has been an issue with finding asbestos in schools as well, and it blows my mind. It absolutely stuns me.
