Nightingale hospital opened – first of several to be built in the country
The first of the government’s emergency field hospitals to treat coronavirus patients has opened in east London’s ExCel centre.
The temporary NHS Nightingale Hospital is able to hold as many as 4,000 patients and will be staffed by NHS medics with help from the military.
Prince Charles paid tribute to staff as he opened the hospital via video link. Similar hospitals are planned across the UK, including in Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, Harrogate and Bristol.
The ExCel exhibition space – usually used for large events such as Crufts and Comic Con – was transformed into a hospital in just nine days.
The message remains the same. Stay at home, stay safe, stay alive, save the NHS
