29 June 2017

Chris Long, Chief Executive of Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust says:

“The safety of everyone using the hospital is of utmost importance to us.

“In a bid to provide assurance for our patients, staff and visitors, and in accordance with guidance set out by NHS Improvement, cladding samples have been sent away for testing.

“Based on the information obtained to date, we can confirm that the cladding on the Hull Royal Infirmary tower block is not the same as that used on the Grenfell tower block.”
