CNWL chief nurse Maria O’Brien was given a tour of the re-purposed wards on St Pancras Hospital’s South Wing, where we already provide intermediate care services.

The changes here are part of our response to Covid-19. We have opened more than 120 community care beds with more than half on the South Wing at St Pancras.

Some beds are for patients with suspected Covid-19.

We have also redeployed staff to services such as intermediate care services where there is greater need, creating new teams for the duration of the pandemic.

During her tour, Maria thanked staff for their efforts and added:

“I like that everybody has come together to form these new teams – both those who have joined from other services and those who are here permanently.

“That has been really positive.

“And thinking of those of you redeployed here I hope that you can take away the skills you’ve learned here when you go back to your own services.

“I want you all to be proud of what you’ve accomplished here and what you are doing. Thank you so much. We really couldn’t have coped without you all being here – both those of you redeployed and those who are here permanently.”
