Asbestos-riddled schools, hospitals and social housing is the next big scandal

*Article by Airtight on Asbestos founder, Charles Pickles, in the Daily Mail.

Read Helen Bone’s story, a 42-year-old mother of three, and former nurse who was diagnosed with mesothelioma three years ago.

Helen has spent her working life in hospitals — all containing asbestos – and like most of us would have attended schools where asbestos was also present.

We're now seeing the premature deaths of doctors, nurses and teachers who have worked in public buildings containing asbestos, and of thousands of others who were exposed to it as school children. Helen is typical of this new category of patient.

Charles Pickles calls on the next government to address the biggest national scandal of our times, to implement the recommendations of the Work & Pensions Select Committee, and finally remove all asbestos from all public buildings.
