HMCTS carefully manages the risk of legionella across the estate and has robust protocols for monitoring and testing with preventative measures in place to ensure the safety of all those who use our buildings.

The Covid-19 pandemic has led to changes in water demand across the HMCTS estate. All buildings have been assessed and legionella controls have been adapted as necessary. We have also increased the frequency of sample testing, temperature checks and water outlet flushing across the estate.
