Coronavirus: Search for Brighton patients treated by infected healthcare workers

Coronavirus search for Brighton patients being treated by infected healthcare workers.

An urgent search has been launched after two healthcare workers diagnosed with coronavirus in Brighton.

Health officials believe about a dozen patients came into contact with the healthcare workers.

They had been working in general practice at the County Oak Medical Centre in Carden Hill.

One of the healthcare workers has been named as Dr Catriona Greenwood, who owns the French Chalet with her husband where 11 people caught coronavirus from Steve Walsh a businessman who contracted the virus in Singapore before flying to France and then the UK.

The GP practice where Dr Greenwood works have been closed since Monday and a second branch – in the Deneway area of Brighton – was also closed on Tuesday for “urgent operational health and safety reasons”.
