Legionnaires Disease

The LMC understands that some practices are concerned that they need to undertake a complex risk assessment for Legionnaires Disease that might include employing an outside agency.

The GPC/BMA is quite clear that this is not required for general practices and this has been discussed with CQC at a national level.  Attached is an example of a simple risk assessment that practices can adopt to reflect their own circumstances but which can be undertaken by a member of your administrative team: Legionella Risk Assessment

If this causes you a problem with CQC or their representatives then please let the LMC know and we will address this on your behalf.
