International support services, Interserve Group has been awarded a contract to convert three hotels into Covid-19 isolation centres to accommodate patients who are recovering from the disease.
It has been block booked by the DHSC for use as an isolation and quarantine facility should it be required. It will be used for international visitors to the UK who develop coronavirus symptoms and for Britons who have returned home from countries that have had Covid-19 cases.
The group has already converted two other facilities into isolation units on behalf of the NHS; at Arrowe Park Hospital on the Wirral and at a hotel and conference centre at Kents Hill Park in Milton Keynes.
Mark Buckle, divisional sirector, Interserve Construction, said: “Interserve Construction and Interserve Engineering Services have considerable experience and strong capabilities in delivering significant NHS facilities across the UK, as evidenced by the work we have done on the new NHS Nightingale Birmingham Hospital.”
