Pigeon control measures at Southend Hospital

13 January 2019

Health Care

Following social media posts circulating about measures at Southend to reduce risks and damage associated with pigeons and their droppings:

Representatives at Southend University Hospital met with London Wildlife Protection today, 14 January, on the hospital site to discuss potential alternatives that will help us control the pigeon population onsite and reduce the damage caused by the pigeons and their waste. We will consider these options and discuss the best approach with the licensed pest control company we work with.

We would also like to make it clear that the images distributed in the social media post circulating about pigeons at Southend Hospital are not images of the control measures in place on our site.
