A YOUNG boy has returned to a children's nursery after being treated in hospital for suspected meningitis.
He was one of two cases among children at Willows Day Nursery in Firth Street, Rastrick.
Owner Teresa Green said both boys were taken ill at home.
Both children spent several days in hospital before being discharged.
The second boy is still at home and has yet to return to the nursery.
Fifty-five children are on the books at the nursery, which has continued to operate as normal.
Mrs Green, whose own grandchild attends the nursery, said: "We contacted the primary care trust as soon as we knew about this and followed their advice.
"We sent two letters to parents and also contacted them on the phone."
A spokeswoman for Calderdale NHS Primary Care Trust confirmed the two boys had been sent home after treatment.
But she said she was unable to give further details because of patient confidentiality.
* A vaccine against a life-threatening form of meningitis might be given to babies in Britain, the Department of Health has revealed.
The jab against pneumococcal meningitis, which kills about 50 children a year and leaves more severely disabled, might be available for all infants from April, according to reports.
The Department of Health said it was looking at providing the immunisation, but stressed that no decision had yet been made.
If it gets the go-ahead, babies could be given two doses of the vaccine in their first year.
