To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what the cost was of the construction of the Nightingale Hospital Birmingham; how many patients it has admitted; and what plans he has for its use in the weeks ahead.
10 December 2020
Information on the costs of the Nightingale hospital in Birmingham are not available because they are commercially confidential.
As at 8 December 2020, no patients have been admitted to the hospital because the additional capacity has not yet been required. However, the hospital remains on stand-by ready to play whatever role is needed in the months to come. Local clinical leaders are working to determine how this is done whilst considering the needs of all patients requiring National Health Service care.
