We are representing the family of a woman who has tragically died after developing mesothelioma, an asbestos related condition.
The beloved mother had worked at BBC Broadcasting House and the BBC Duchess Street building between 1958 and 1968.
Anne-Patricia, also known as Patricia, Tricia and Trish, was diagnosed with an asbestos related condition, mesothelioma in early 2023 and tragically died just a few weeks later on the 9th March 2023.
Tiny asbestos particles, which were used extensively in a range of products and building materials until 1999, cause the fatal cancer to develop decades later, after lying dormant in the body. Mesothelioma is just one type of cancer that can be caused when asbestos particles are inhaled.
Following her death, her family are now desperately appealing to her former colleagues in a bid to uncover the circumstances of how she may have been exposed to asbestos at the BBC.
Patricia, also known as Tricia or Trish, worked as a secretary at the BBC in both the Duchess Street building and BBC Broadcasting house from 1958 until 1968. She then went on to work at Sussex University.
If you worked with Patricia at the BBC between 1958 and 1968 or have any information about the presence of asbestos in BBC Broadcasting House or the Duchess Street building, please contact Nicky Howe on 0330 995 5193 or email .
