"question re air quality in the glass tunnel ."

About: Stepping Hill Hospital

During my visit I was directed from the main building to go to Audiology via the glass tunnel. I found this to be an uncomfortable experience owing to the heat of the sun but I arrived for my appointment feeling well and in good humour. However later in the day I suddenly felt very fatigued and took to my bed where I slept for 12hours , waking up with symptoms of a heavy cold. I strongly feel that the humid atmosphere in the tunnel ( ripe for breeding germs ) was the cause of my affliction and I would be interested to be informed of what procedures are in place to check the air quality in this particular location.

Thank you for your feedback. The short walkway to audiology has windows and we open them on warm days. I will pass your comments to the head of facilities for his information. Kieren Done Complaints and Customer Service Team Manager
