We have made no such estimate. Staffing of the Nightingale hospitals is managed by host trusts, and is based on safe staffing levels according to the number of patients requiring care and the type of care provided. This has meant that throughout the pandemic, staffing levels have fluctuated to ensure an appropriate number of staff are available at all times.
