Although it is being reported that the will be used as a Hospital to fight , it hasn’t been formally confirmed by the Government that it will be.

said:

The fight against the outbreak is a national endeavour and I am proud that is playing its full part in that fight.

The Convention Centre provides versatile space in a well connected location that has proved itself over decades. It has been successfully used for high profile, high security sensitive functions, and I believe these factors will have been important in the government and NHS deciding we should host a Hospital.

This is the biggest crisis to face out nation since the second world war.  The biggest thing we can all do to help is to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives. In our area it is great that we have gone further and are playing an important role in the wider national effort.

  1. Would it be possible to set up a canteen facility for the workforce building it? I know someone who’s been called up to construct the hospital bays and I know he’s been asked to work 12 hour shifts for the next 2 weeks. We need to show our appreciation for the tradespeople who will be grafting hard to accommodate the patients wellbeing.

  2. I’ve just walked past, there is a lot of activity, BT checking phone/ computer lines, Yorkshire Water checking water supplies and sewers. NHS vehicles and large wagons making delivery!

  3. Somebody had best tell the workers there if this is NOT official from the Government because it looks like a big concrete block in front of the Royal Hall is been constructed

  4. Are there volunteers sewing scrubs for the Nightingale and Harrogate general hospital? Have a group who would be interested in doing this…..please contact me!

    • Hi Maggie
      I would be happy to make some scrubs to help if required. I’m not saying I can make hundreds of sets but I’m certainly happy to do what I can.
      I have sewn for years and although I have mainly made curtains I can turn my hand to most things.
      I look forward to hearing from you.
      Kind regards

    • Hi Maggie
      I’m not much good at sewing but could easily use pattern & cut out pieces ready to pass on to sewer. Would that help?

  5. Hi Maggie
    I can sew, have made dresses for my grandchildren. Would like to help laundry bags or scrubs or both. Do you need headbands to stop masks rubbing ears?
    Where do you get material to make scrubs and the pattern.

  6. Hi Maggie I would be happy to sew for a group – could you let me know re material and pattern. Happy to try source my own material but would need to know re pattern.

  7. Hello Maggie, I’m also able to make scrubs etc.
    Have pattern cutting and sewing experience.
    Kind regards
