Former Navy Captain: NHS Nightingale staff will need lasting support after coronavirus pandemic

A former commanding officer at Camp Bastion’s pop-up military hospital has issued a pep-talk to staff working at the new NHS Nightingale hospitals, telling them: “There is an end to this, you will defeat the enemy.” Captain Carol Betteridge, who ran the field hospital in Helmand Province during British presence in Afghanistan, said there were many comparisons with the pop-up medical centre and the temporary facilities created back on home soil to treat coronavirus patients.

And she praised the staff and volunteers – including military veterans – for getting involved in the Nightingale project, despite the extremely challenging conditions that lay ahead.
