Health authorities on radioactively polluted coast

List of health authorities
which ought to be concerned about
the child leukaemia cluster newly discovered in North Wales
[Link to page on the new cluster]

Home

The list includes United Kingdom bodies with responsibility for communities living in areas washed by seas which Sellafield has polluted with radioactivity.
We have included the Irish Sea coast of north Wales, the Dee, and all the way up the west coast to the north of Scotland and the Western Isles.
We also considered

  • Somerset, where excess cancer risk is associated with contamination from Hinkley Point Nuclear Power Plant,
  • Essex, parts of which are affected by discharges from Bradwell Nuclear Power Plant
  • and Gloucestershire, parts of south Wales and Gwent. This is because the Bristol Channel and the River Severn are contaminated by Oldbury, Hinkley Point, Berkeley and the Amersham International plant in Cardiff. (Link to leukaemia cluster in Chepstow.)

We have not included Primary Care Trusts ('though we have included Somerset Coast PCT which has Hinkley Point on its patch and has taken a lead in denying the cancer cluster in Burnham on Sea)
Details for all PCTs can be found on the internet at http://www.nhs.uk/root/localnhsservices/list_orgs.asp?ot=5__
