    “Norma and John booked their seven-day stay at Loch Achray Hotel to enjoy a relaxing break, never imagining it could have ended in such tragedy. “Now Norma’s family just want to know if anything could have been done differently to prevent her death and whether there are any lessons to be learned which may prevent what happened to Norma happening to anyone else.”

    First Wedding Anniversary Ruined By Gastric Illness In Mexico

    “Clearly Stephen and Kelli were expecting a fantastic holiday to celebrate their first year of marriage, but sadly they did not experience this and have been left with terrible memories of the holiday as a result of the illness Stephen endured in the final few days of the break. “We have now launched our own investigation into the illness he suffered at the resort. Holidaymakers should not expect to come home feeling ill when they are heading off to a luxury resort abroad to relax. “Stephen and Kelli are hopeful that by taking legal action they will ensure the concerns they have about the standard of the hotel and the hygiene practices in place will be addressed by Thomas Cook, whom they booked their holiday with, as they simply do not want to see others go through the same ordeal they did.”

    Second Birmingham Pool Shut After Parasitic Bug Cryptosporidium Found In Water

    “The discovery of Cryptosporidium at the Cocks Moors Woods pool last month was very concerning as we know from experience how serious the illness it causes can be for children. So to hear now that a second pool has identified the presence of Cryptosporidium in its water raises further questions. It’s encouraging that the pool has been closed until results from the large pool are returned and the matter can be dealt with. In cases such as these the focus should always be on public protection and the reasons why this happened need to be explored. Customers also need to be reassured that everything is being done to prevent further recurrences. Cryptosporidium can have very serious health implications and long-term issues for those affected; something we see first-hand in our work so it’s important everything is done to prevent anyone else from falling ill.”

    Hepatitis A Cases Continue To Rise In Wales

    “We are all too aware of the unpleasant and potentially harmful effects of hepatitis A and it is crucial that everything is done to prevent such a contagious infection spreading. “It’s positive to see that Public Health Wales launched an investigation immediately but with further cases being confirmed their number one priority must be to take every possible step to stop the virus spreading further. “A full investigation should play a huge role in determining how these problems emerged in the first place and also provide answers as to how similar issues could be prevented in the future. “When children are involved, it is only natural to be worried about an outbreak of this kind and the best way to control such incidents is by responding quickly and decisively to any new cases.”
