Essex hospital fined £350,000

An Essex hospital trust has been ordered to pay £350,000 over health and safety breaches.

Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals Trust had previously pleaded guilty to failing to protect patients from the potentially-fatal effects of Legionnaires' disease, which led to the deaths of two people.

Today the hospital was fined at Chelmsford Crown Court for that failure, and another, which led to a patient falling from a window.
