NHS Nightingale Yorkshire

As part of the UK government response to the Covid-19 pandemic, 7 emergency critical care hospitals were built in England in quick time, including one in the Harrogate Convention Centre: ‘NHS Nightingale Yorkshire and the Humber’. They were designed to provide care to the worst affected patients and prevent further spread of the disease inside hospitals.

This project was unique because it went from idea to completion in a matter of weeks.

The field hospital was divided up into 8 ICU wards, requiring a full medical gas installation, with the provision of medical oxygen, air and vacuum to each of the 500 beds.

Our services on this project were end-to-end and included system design, installation, testing, commissioning and validation.

Key features:

  • 2 x Containerised Medical Air (8000 l/m) & Vacuum Plants (6000 l/m)
  • Plant Alarm System
  • 500 Beds Total: 18 No Individual Wards complete with AVZM’s & Area Alarms
  • 2 No O2, 1 No Med Air 4 & Vacuum to each bed
  • 250 Beds full CPAP capability

What stands out about this important project is the high degree of quality achieved in such a short space of time, and the extremely high level of collaboration between all teams and parties to get this over the line.
