Temporary closure of Eastham Clinic



Temporary closure of Eastham Clinic

We took the decision to temporarily close Eastham Clinic on Friday 26 August following the discovery of maggots within the ground floor and car park.


Our priority is to maintain high quality care and safety of patients and the wellbeing of staff. Therefore with immediate effect, all services including the Walk-in Centre were relocated to alternative sites.


Pest Control Engineers contracted by NHS Property Services attended the property and carried out a full assessment and treatment of the area. They confirm that the cause of the infestation was not within Eastham clinic but from an external source. A full deep clean of the clinic has taken place.


We pride ourselves in the delivery of high quality care and are working hard to reinstate services in the building once it is safe to do so. We anticipate this will be Monday 5 September subject to Infection Prevention and Control clearance.


The trust carries out Infection Prevention and Control audits to measure compliance against national standards and to ensure we provide a safe, clean environment for our patients and staff. All trust premises are audited at a minimum annually by one of the trusts Infection Prevention and Control Nurses and consistently high scores are achieved in each of our premises


Environment Health Services have been informed of the problem.
