First Nightingale hospital REOPENS

FIRST Nightingale hospital in the country REOPENS in Manchester.

In an announcement this morning, Professor Jane Eddleston, head of Manchester University NHS Trust confirmed that the Nightingale, closed in June, will reopen “towards the end of next week”.

The temporary hospital will be set up in the Manchester Central Conference Centre.

‘The Nightingale will not be used as a critical care facility and neither was it in the first phase, it will be used as a facility for patients to have additional rehabilitation’ she said.

It comes as Manchester is preparing to enter Tier Three lockdown rules from midnight on Friday, October 23 and is in anticipation of a surge of Covid-19 cases in the city.

Meanwhile, hospitals in nearby Liverpool are reported to already be treating more Covid-19 patients than they were in the spring’s first wave, while Nottinghamshire is facing the toughest restrictions because of an outbreak in its main city.

One of SAGE’s advisers, Professor John Edmunds, warned on Wednesday, October 21 that the system’s inevitable conclusion will be ‘high levels’ of infection all over the country.
