Hospital asks people to stay away

20th March 2008

The Great Western Hospital in Swindon urged people suffering from diarrhoea and vomiting to stay away from its premises in a bid to avoid an outbreak of a bug at the hospital.

While it stressed that no wards had closed, health bosses were aware a bug was “doing the rounds� in the area and were anxious for people not to bring it into the hospital. The hospital advised anyone suffering symptoms to contact their local pharmacist or NHS Direct for advice.
