New mothers HIV alert

23rd May 2008

About 200 women have been offered an HIV test after an NHS staff member working at hospitals at Basildon and Southend in Essex was found to have the virus.

Following an inquiry by the Health Protection Agency, all patients treated by the worker have been identified and letters sent to them. The staff member was employed by Southend University Hospital and Basildon and Thurrock Hospitals NHS Trust in 2006 and early 2007, but has been reassigned to other duties and is no longer working with new mothers.
