Meningitis man on the mend

A MEMBER of staff at The Henley College is on the mend after contracting bacterial meningitis.

A MEMBER of staff at The Henley College is on the mend after contracting bacterial meningitis.

The man, a member of the support staff and not a teacher, was taken to hospital after being diagnosed two weeks ago. He had been at work all week but went home early as he felt unwell.

College principal Jayne Davis said her colleague was getting better.

She added: “There have been no further cases of this disease at the college and the probability of any person being infected as a result of contact with this member of staff is extremely low.

“The college remains in contact with the relevant health authorities and students, staff and parents have been updated.”



As soon as the college was made aware of the diagnosis it told students, parents, staff and visitors via a letter and stressed that they should not be “overly concerned”.

Mrs Davis said: “We worked fast to get the communication out to everybody we thought should know.”
