Constructed in January 2022
DateJanuary 2022 - March 2022
DescriptionA temporary Nightingale Hospital was built in Bristol in January 2022, ostensibly to deal with the Omicron variant. It closed without having treated a single patient.

The Bristol Covid surge hub was built to deal with COVID-19 patients.[1] Located in the grounds of Southmead Hospital, the site held 100 patients.[2] The authorities officially built it in expectation of a huge Omicron surge;[3]


The North Bristol NHS Trust was one of eight locations across England to be on standby. In late February, it was announced the 'surge hub' was to be dismantled, after treating no patients.[4]

The Telegraph reported that the 8 Covid new hubs across England cost £11m to build, but only one has treated any patients.[5]

The 'surge hub' in Bristol was separate to the original Nightingale Hospital, which was built at the start of "the pandemic" inside a university conference centre in Frenchay. It closed down in April 2021, having also never been used.

Purposes

The role as a psychological operation to scare people into additional COVID injections is not to overlooked, in addition to the obvious potential for contract fraud.
