    LEGIONELLA TESTING – DOCTOR’S SURGERIES

    Legionella test kits for Doctor’s Surgeries

    Danger Areas

    Traditional surgeries have simple water services which tend to be used on a regular basis. This makes them a lower risk than many other properties but many of the people who visit are in the ‘High Risk’ category which means they are the most susceptible to contract legionnaires’ disease.

    For most surgeries, a single legionella test on the hot water will be sufficient. Since a single test is less than £50 +VAT most surgeries schedule routine testing to confirm there is no risk to their staff or patients.
