Time-lapse footage has documented how a university building in Bristol has been transformed into a Nightingale Hospital in a matter of days.

The facility is one of five in England that will give specialist care for patients critically ill with Covid-19, along with others in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Harrogate.

It is housed at the University of West England’s Frenchay campus, at the Exhibition and Conference Centre, and will be run by North Bristol NHS Trust.

On Thursday, April 9, the NHS released photos of the transformation, as well as a sped-up video showing construction crews racing to get the hospital ready in time for the first patients.

The video shows a vast expanse of carpet being ripped up and more suitable flooring rolled out in its place, with dividing ‘walls’ then put up to create separate patient pods and corridors.

Bristol’s Nightingale Hospital will be able to treat up to 1,000 patients, and the first will be admitted before the end of the month, the NHS said.

Elizabeth O’Mahoney, who will oversee the facility, said: “The Nightingale Bristol will support our hospitals to care for critically ill patients as and when needed.

“We would prefer never to even admit a patient, but it will be in place if needed.

“We would ask that everyone in the south west follows the national recommendations to stay at home, observe social distancing, protect your local NHS and each of you will help save lives.”
