Updated on 27 February 2015, 982 views

CQC Produced a Myth buster on Legionella as they had been contacted by many practices for advice, All systems require a risk assessment, but not all systems will require elaborate control measures. Neither CQC nor HSE make any requirements about who carries out the risk assessment; the HSE guidance describes what a risk assessment should include. A simple risk assessment may show that the risks are low and being properly managed. In many cases the risk assessment will lead the practice to conclude that the risks are insignificant and are being properly managed to comply with the law. In these instances the assessment is complete and no further action is required.
