Lessons from Covid – how to flex capacity

09 Nov 2021
AGM Theatre 4
The Nightingale Hospital London (NHL) was the first of seven new UK National Health Service (NHS) hospitals designed to address the potential shortfall in critical care capacity caused by the rapidly escalating first wave of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. When scenes of hospitals at risk of saturation were being broadcast internationally, the initial NHL mandate was to deliver a large-scale intensive care unit (ICU) for up to 4000 ventilated patients to increase the capacity of London’s existing hospitals. This presentation will cover a description of the rapid build of an ICU in a convention centre, the challenges faced both in the build and delivery of care and crucially learning from the experience.
