Nightingale Hospital at Solihull Hospital stood down

Solihull Editorial 22nd Feb, 2022   0

THE NIGHTINGALE Hospital set up on Solihull Hospital’s car park has been stood down.

The site, which was set up to combat a increase of Omicron admissions as coronavirus rates rose, was one of six sites set up earlier this year.

NHS England said the Solihull site was not required to take patients.

An NHS spokesperson said: “Nightingale Hubs were created to provide additional capacity for local services in the event they came under very intense pressure and currently, they are not required in seven areas of the country.”

With the news that Covid-19 admissions across the region are improving, the temporary structures will be removed by March 31.

The other hubs were in Leicester, Preston, Leeds, Stevenage, London, Ashford and Bristol.
