Rubber Box supported NHS and emergency nightingale hospitals

Our products have a long history of being used to supply temporary facilities and events, and this month we’ve been busy with one of the most time-critical orders in recent memory – supplying our electrical distribution equipment to the National Health Service, to help them set up the new Nightingale hospitals in locations across the UK.

With adaptable, scalable products and a speedy, efficient service, we supplied equipment for four separate Nightingale hospitals. The products in question comprised several types of stock units and cables, which were used to power ventilators and other lifesaving equipment. Here, we explain a bit about the purpose of Nightingale hospitals, and how they were used to serve public health at large.

What are the Nightingale hospitals?

In a nutshell, the Nightingale hospitals are emergency field hospitals – temporary facilities that are were set up across the UK to provide critical care to patients affected by Covid-19, otherwise known as the coronavirus. Under the oversight of NHS England, these Nightingale hospitals were set up in major cities and urban centres in large venues which are normally used for lifestyle shows, expos and conferences. (Examples include the Birmingham NEC and Manchester Central convention centre.)

The full list of locations includes:

  • Glasgow SEC
  • Belfast City Hospital
  • Harrogate Convention Centre
  • Manchester Central
  • Birmingham NEC
  • London ExCel
  • Cardiff Principality Stadium
  • Bristol UWE
