LBWF and asbestos: how those potentially most affected are treated

A correspondent who worked in the Town hall for a number of years writes as follows:

‘After over a dozen emails and three interventions by my councillor…and after filling in a form (which was more suitable for a manager reporting on an industrial accident in their department) I have now been told the types of asbestos to which I may have been exposed. Talk about jumping through hoops !

I have written to my doctor to have this entered on my medical records.

Of course, none of this answers the general point of how people who have been exposed but who didn’t see about it in the press and who are not particularly tenacious get to find out this info’.

Another absolute disgrace.
