A review is to be launched into the screening of health workers returning from Ebola affected countries.
The announcement came after Pauline Cafferkey was diagnosed with the deadly virus after she returned to the UK from her work helping patients in Sierra Leone.
Public Health England has announced a review into its screening measures, which were branded “utterly illogical” by an NHS doctor who returned from Africa with the Scottish nurse.
Simon Calder explains what went wrong with current process, which cost millions of pounds to implement. Ms Cafferkey had complained of feeling unwell at Heathrow but was allowed to continue her journey to Glasgow. The doctor travelling with her described the process as a "complete shambles."
This was the first time the screening process had faced a patient with Ebola and it failed.
