The beds originally designated for Nightingale Hospitals are being reallocated according to requirements across the National Health Service.

Small amounts of equipment remain in-situ at the Nightingale Hospitals to maintain a state of readiness in case of a second surge. However, critical items have been relocated to where they are most required: no equipment has been left unused at the Nightingales if it was needed elsewhere.
